French Onion Soup

Submitted by: BLONDI65

Introduction

This is a delicious and filling soup with a resturant-quality flavor, able to stand on it's own as a main entree. I choose to use butter for this recipe because it is a natural ingredient. Because of the amount of onions, you really can't cut back on the amount of butter. This is a delicious and filling soup with a resturant-quality flavor, able to stand on it's own as a main entree.
