Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Made this once - will definitely make it again. Only changes were I cut the recipe down for two of us (cut it in half - had enough for 4 servings) and used home made croutons instead of bread slices. Excellent onion base! Well done!

After I make this reciepe I will rate it. It sounds great as I love onions.
