Creamy, Cheesy Onion Soup

Cassie *


If you like will like this delicious soup. Even my kids like it...what's not to like? It's cheesy, creamy and savory. ..It's also a quick fix, when in a hurry...I guarantee you will love it.

Serve it with a salad, and a slice of crusty bread, and you will have a complete and satisfying meal.

This makes 4 servings...I always double the batch...that's how good it is.
