    i subbed fat free spread for the butter and no salt for the salt. I also used my own beef stock made without salt. The recipe turned out wonderful and I was able to cut the fat out completely and lower the sodium significantly. Awesome and authentic onion soup flavor. - 1/15/08

    Totally awesome! Didn't have Sherry so used brandy and didn't have the double strength beef broth so used reduced sodium beef stock with a package of beef boulion. Too bad it only made 3 servings :) So yummy!!!! - 10/30/10

    This soup is so good, and easy to make. I used a veggie broth instead of beef broth due to being a veggie. It was amazing!!!! - 1/20/10
