I give this recipe 5 stars because it is the best BASIC french onion soup recipe that I've found. I made several adjustments to make it healthier. I used 2 red, 2 white, and 2 yellow onions, who...

I fixed this and loved it. I left out the wine but followed the recipe with all the other ingredients. It was very, very easy to cook and oh so good. Thank you.

This was easy and flavorful. It makes a great starter for a fancy meal at home.

Excellent, used red wine instead turned out great. Also had no swiss so used mozzarella cheese. will make again for sure


I was craving French Onion soup (pregnant lol) This hit the spot and was very easy to make. Had to leave out the wine unfortunately though.

I did not care for this.... should have called for a red wine

Pretty good.

We loved it just as described. Probably the best French Onion I've ever made.
