    Way too sweet. Wish I had read the reviews first not just looked at the number of stars.

    use dry white wine instead of sherry and no sugar, it won't be sweet

    I haven't made the soup yet but right off the top I can tell you, if it was too sweet, eliminate the 1T of sugar. Onions have natural sugar in them which adds enough for a savory dish like onion soup.

    Maybe I did something wrong, but I didn't care for this soup. It was way too sweet!

    This was, hands down, one of the best meals I've ever made. Recipe took 90 minutes, not 35 as stated
