Eyeball Soup

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

Makes

10 servings (about 2-3/4 quarts)

My family has fun serving this creamy soup to unsuspecting guests and watching their reaction when they stir up an onion "eyeball". You can make the soup a day ahead and reheat it in the slow cooker.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 5 cups milk
  • 1 bottle (46 ounces) V8 juice or spicy hot V8 juice
  • 1 cup frozen pearl or small whole onions, thawed

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until blended. Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. In another saucepan, bring V8 to a boil. Reduce heat; gradually whisk in white sauce. Add onions; heat through.
Editor’s Note: If a smoother soup is desired, cool and puree in batches in a blender before adding onions.
