  • I even used just a plain old yellow onion for this once and it still tasted great.

    I prefer a little less butter, about 4 or 4 1/2 tablespoons instead of 6.

    This soup tastes wonderfully rich if you use whole milk.

    The recipe actually calls for Velveeta cheese but I don't like it that much so I use regular cheddar cheese.

    I rarely have fresh parsley but it still tastes delicious with dried parsley flakes.

When you have no time and barely anything in the cupboards, this is a good bet.
