This soup is okay. I agree that beef stock would be better. It's missing that hearty beef flavor. I omitted the potatoes and added elbow noodles trying to mimic Cracker Barrel. All in all I would describe it as bland. Will try it again but with beef stock. Read More

This is an exceptional soup and unbelievably easy too! My family could not get enough of it. We enjoyed it with homemade french baguettes and I grated a little cheddar cheese on top of the soup before serving. Delicious! Read More

This is the first time I have ever made homemade soup and my family loved it. I added a few things to add more flavor and it turned out perfect. I added: 2 tbsp worcestershire, 1 tbsp basil, 1 additional potato, 1 package Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix. Thanks for this recipe! Read More

I loved this! It was so easy to make and not an expensive meal. The flavors where great. I don't think it is fair to rate something after one has changed so much to the recipe, so based only on the recipe I give it 5 stars. However I did end up adding a quick squirt of Worcestershire. Thanks for sharing this great and tasty meal. Read More

Good solid soup recipe! Nothing strange or unusual here and not to spicey. I will definately be making this again (probably next week.) Be aware though, this makes a lot of soup - I had eight 1 1/2 cup servings. My pot couldn't have held anymore! Read More

This is a great base recipe. One can customize to their liking. The best soups are made with a little of this and a pinch of that and a lot of love. Thanks for the post. Read More

I fixed this soup for my family and they all loved it. Even my picky son enjoyed it. I will be fixing it again soon. I, like another reviewer, used beef stock instead of water and it turned out great. This is a hit in my house and will stay at the top during these cold months! Read More
