There is a LOT of butter and MANY onions in this soup. There are no passengers. Everything is flavour. My friend Dan was about as I peeled the onions, halved them, and began slicing them. It wasn’t until I had filled a large salad bowl with slices that he commented on the quantity of them. I see his point though. I have never seen such a volume of prepared onions. Its not all onions though. The ingredients read like an all star lineup: onions, butter, bacon, chicken stock, port, balsamic vinegar, croutons, Gruyere. The end result is candy. Meat candy. Mmmm..
