You won't miss a step with this savory soup that has a touch of sweetness from molasses. Tender onions and a beefy broth make it especially noteworthy. You can serve it solo or topped with Quarter Note Croutons.

    Slimy and very sweet. Single handedly the WORST soup I have ever made. I made an account only to spare someone the time and aggravation of making this garbage. I will be deleting it now.
