Vidalia Onion Soup

Vidalia Onion Soup


"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."
