Onion Cheese Soup Recipe

Onion Cheese Soup Recipe

I made a few adjustments to this savory soup recipe I came across in a community cookbook. It's rich, buttery and cheesy, plus it's so quick to prepare. —Janice Pogozelski, Cleveland, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 4 cups milk

"This is a basis for a good soup. As written, it isn't. If you caramelize the onions, then add sliced mushrooms before continuing with the directions, it will up the flavor a lot. To make it even creamier (and if you aren't on a diet) use half milk and part 1/2 & 1/2. Also does need salt."

"quick AND delicious, I couldn't ask for more! I used fresh grated Colby-Jack, threw in two medium potatoes that I had precooked and chopped, and replaced 2 cups of milk with 2 cups of chicken broth. I will DEFINITELY make this again, hands down!"

"I made this for lunch the other day and although it had a good flavor, my cheese curdled as soon as I put it in. I ended up throwing most of it out. Maybe using velvetta would make a difference. I didn't boil the milk but it was very hot. I did read a recent review where someone said you should grate your own cheese instead of buying shredded cheese because there is something in the pre-shredded that makes it curdle. Don't know if that is true but it might be worth trying."

"Enjoyed this recipe, very easy, I did add a cup of evaporated milk , instead of all milk, and sauted my onions in bacon grease. Next time I think I will ad hash browns to it and make potato soup, and maybe a little bacon bits. Yummy"
