Good Grief. My Mother taught me that if I didn't have something nice to say... It's just a recipe, try it or don't. And by the way - I think it sounds wonderful! Adding it to my grocery list now.

Very good. The cider adds a savory flavor. I especially enjoy the hilarious, bossy comments from omnipotent readers. It's soo funny!

Very good. The cider makes it extra savory. But my favorite thing about Mr Food s recipes are the hilarious, bossy comments from omnipotent readers. It's soo funny!

Well, it's a shame that this is not the French recipe for French onion soup. I have the recipe from France and it is delicious. Sorry not going to share. But, enjoy a "not French onion soup!!!"

Why bother replying if you are not gonna share recipe.

Okay. DON'T share. But know that the French recipe for French Onion Soup can be found all over the internet. Oops--There it is again!

Honestly, these people that are so obsessed with nutritional values should just have a book that lists all food items and their values. I believe any home cooked meal made with common sense is fine for anyone to eat, if you are watching fat, use something else, if you limit salt, use salt substitute. You should be more worried about the problems with our food supply with all the chemicals, pesticides, genetic modified, etc., otherwise, buy some premade frozen food, it lists all your values you obsess over.

Sounds yummy! None of my onion soup recipes has cider in them, am looking forward to trying it!

Not seeing the secret ingredient here. Always used these ingredients for French Onion Soup. Thanks.

It's the cider.

Leave the Cheese out, just put a slice on the top of bowl, EZer to open a can of Resturant pack Campbells soup heat and serve.

Try substituting BEER for the cider, an idea I got from the best french onion soup I had from a local brewery's restaurant! It really will be phenominal!

dlita 13 5413221 should be fired for her NASTY replies. If she works for Mr Food she is not portraying him very well. I also would like the recipe nutrition of the recipes. You said you wanted to improve the site in honor of Mr Food, then why not add the nutritional value to the recipes. I know this willl not make it to the site but I loved Mr Food and he deserves respect.

The comments posted from anyone other than us does not work for the Mr. Food Test Kitchen. As far as the nutritional information for our recipes, that is something we are working on. There is quite a bit involved so that the information is accurate, but we are getting closer everyday. We appreciate your patience while we work towards giving our customers every feature possible to make our site better!

Why don't you have the nutritional value for recipes you have?

Yes I woud also love the nutritional values for this soup as I am on the Weight Watchers Diet Plan. Sounds delish!

If you really need the nutritional values, you can go to sparkpeople.com. The website allows you to input recipes with ingredients, directions and servings. It will then calculate the values for you. I use it all the time.

Do you have the nutritional value for this recipe? It sounds delicious.

I like the idea of apple cider. I will definitely try this. Also, I like the idea of using Swiss Cheese.

Have made this Soup about five times over the last 5 years after I saw the show in Rockford Illinois. It is great! Especially after it has sat for a day and warmed the next day!

Finally some positive comments.Was going to try it anyway, but nice to see positive people loke Mr Food was still exist. God Bless and thanks
