Notes

Well, for about 14 years now I don't eat Beef or Pork any longer. The main ingredient other then onions in french onion soup is Beef broth. I even see the soup with bacon! It also has way too much salt most the time. So since its been that many years since I've had it, and I have a craving for it I put together my own recipe.
