A huge hit for dinner, the sweet taste of Vidalia onions combines with chicken broth and cream for a rich, deeply flavored treat. The soup is blended in a blender, so it comes out so creamy and thick! If you like Vidalias, you'll love this soup. You can make a lighter version by using milk and no heavy cream.

I made the recipe as stated and it came out really bland. I spiced it up with salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. After this is was pretty good, just not what I was expecting. I put the soup in the blender on the liquify setting, and the consistency I got was that of cream of wheat. Not bad, but not great either. I would give this four stars with the added spices, but I can't say I will make this again. It was fun to try it, though! Read More
