Good recipe, and the speed factor is a plus. Lower in butter than most, which I appreciate. A couple of things I want to mention:
If you read the labels on the au jus mixes, you will find that there is a tremendous variation from brand to brand. This may have something to do with the saltiness issue being reported. In some things, brand names are superfluous, but in something like this, it makes quite a difference. The choice of croutons will also make a big difference.
I think it better to use grueyere cheese and to shred it, rather than slice it.
Thinly sliced onion rings may be traditional, but messy and difficult to eat are also traditions with French onion soup! I find large dices to be easier to negotiate.
