This recipe was a pretty good BASE for a 5 star onion soup. As a few people have pointed out, it was very bland. It had 5 stars so I gave it a whirl. I was very disappointed by the amount of doctoring I had to do to this recipe. There wasn’t nearly enough onions, instead of 2 onion I used about 4 cups, omitted the water and halved the butter. I also added about 2 T. garlic (fresh, minced), 1/4c white wine, 2T worcestershire sauce, 1T fresh parsley, dash of salt and a healthy dose of fresh ground pepper and about 1/2t herbs de provence(yum!). The result turned out very yummy but I felt like I had to rewrite the whole recipe.

my boyfriend loves french onion soup, so i thought i'd give this one a try! Following this recipe like it is was VERY BLAND! it defintly needed some flavoring help. These are the changes i made: Just like some of the below comments i used only 3T of butter (this was PLENTY!!!). I also sauteed the onions with 1 clove chopped garlic - then added 1/4 cup of white wine. I also added about a cup more of beef stalk (would have done boullion if i had had it). I also added 1 1/2 Tbl. of worchestier sauce, 1/2 tsp parsley, and 1/4 tsp ground thyme. With these changes..mmm.. it turned out yummy!

I've had to try so many different recipes and I finally got it right with this one. This is the best recipe you'll find for French Onion Soup. I add in a couple of teaspoons of Worstershire sauce because my pallet calls for it. Tons of cheese and bread and you have an entire meal. We love this one!
