This is a good base soup but it needs a bit of help in the seasoning department. First I added garlic powder to the onions. Second I don't do raw eggs so when I added the yolk mixture I turned the heat up a little more constantly stirred for about 8 more minutes. I added a little sea salt lots of ground pepper and a heaping 1/4 tsp of allspice. After the soup was in bowls I added shredded cheese and grated parmesan. My hubby & I found this to be tasty. I will make this again. Read More

My husband and I really liked this soup! Instead of bread I threw some homemade garlic croutons in with the parmesan - very delicious! Read More

Awesome! I could tell the seasoning wouldn't be enough as written so I added a cube of beef boullion. Best comfort food ever... Read More

Excellent low-fat alternative to the heavy cream-based soups. I found it a little bland however so I added 1/4 teaspoon of allspice which gave it an interesting flavor. Read More

Needed a recipe to replace store bought cream of onion soup (since I didn't have any) for scalloped potato and pork chop casserole. Worked wonderfully! Wasn't sure how to cut onion since recipe didn't state so I just diced them making it harder for my kids to pick them out of the casserole! Read More

I was concerned with taste after reading some comments. I ended up altering the recipe as follows: After sauteing the onions and adding the milk as directed I simmered the soup for 10 min stirring occasionally. At the 10 minute mark I added seasoning half a tsp of minced garlic and the beat egg mixture then simmered for 10 more minutes Stirring occasionally. I'll have to try this with the parmesan cheese topping because I didn't have any on hand tonight. With my modifications A hit with the family! Read More
