Who doesn't like a delicious bowl of soup on a cold day? This is Country Onion Soup with homemade rye croutons, a little different than the traditional clear broth French type. But just as good. Delicious with grilled cheese sandwiches. I am happy to share this tried and true recipe with my JAP friends. Enjoy!
