I had a couple things to change but the recipe worked as a charm. I only had 1 cup of milk, so that's all I used. Instead of tomato juice, I had Spicy V-8 so that's what I used. As a result, I didn't add salt to this recipe (as that stuff is quite salty enough). I also took the suggestion of a previous reviewer by adding my milk to the roux before I added the tomato juice. It made good sense to me, as that's how gravy begins and the flour exists only to thicken the soup. I'd probably cook my onions a bit longer next time, but that's just our taste. I think I'll cook the leftovers again with golden potatoes and serve with bacon on top...EDIT 11/12/09: In remembering this soup, I am taking away 1 star. It just didn't taste 5 star to me, although it was satisfying the 2 nights we finished it off. A good recipe if you have juice but not tomatoes, I think.
