This recipe is really easy to cook, it takes 30 minutes in doing everything and it is creamy and soft. I really recommended if you are in a hurry and want something fine to eat.

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.

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

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

I enjoyed it overall. The onions were sweet & flavorful in this creamy soup.

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.

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!

This was digusting! In the end, it tasted like raw eggs.
