When my husband asked me to make this soup for a dinner at church, I prepared a huge pot and counted on having some left for us. But he came home with an empty pan and many requests for the recipe!—Lise Thomson, Magrath, Alberta

Very flavorful easy to make soup. I didn't use oil though. I substituted 3 T of butter instead. I added a splash of red wine and sautéed the onions with a T spoon of minced garlic. What a brilliant, rich flavor. I added it to my favorites. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

My go to french onion soup. Like other readers I don't use the full amount of oil. My husband works outside all the time so in the winter it gets requested a lot.

I love this soup. I've never made french onion soup before, but always order it when I'm out at a restaurant. I was surprised how simple the process was and that I was able to replicate this tasty soup in my home.

The only recipe I use, and my husbands favorite! I just eye-ball the oil though, 1/3 cup is way to much.
