"This soup is an American take on the classic French Onion soup. With the addition of heavy cream, it has a little more fat but lots more flavor!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

onions, halved and thinly sliced
salt and pepper, to taste
This was really good..but maybe just heavy on the cream a little...it overpowered the soup. I would only do half to 3/4 the cream stated here. Cant wait to try again!
I really LOVED this. I confess I tweaked it quite a bit (but I never would have made this without your inspiration, ktkincaid.) I used six onions and cooked them till well carmelized then added 2 shallots, a leek and some garlic and cooked till softened. I deglazed with 1/2 cup of white wine and added 2 cups chicken broth and simmered for twenty minutes, then added the cream and brought it just to heat. I garnished with large homemade sourdough croutons, shredded gruyere, cracked black pepper and whole fresh chive blossoms.
