    Everyone loved this so much. Used Swiss cheese instead of gruyere and it was still very yummy.

    Very good, but a little too salty. Next time I think I’ll use a little less butter and a little less salt.

    Delicious 😋 I added a few drops if Worcestershire sauce to the onions and then a touch of brandy before adding the flour. Will definitely make it again!

    Too much butter, too mich stock, took over an hour to carmalize onions, and not quite enough flavor. will not try this recipe again

    it was good, but needed some additions. I cooked off some bourbon in the onions and later on added Worcestershire sauce (just a few splashes), to give it a bit more depth of flavor. without that, it was tasting a bit like just stock and onions.

    Tasted great but felt like I needed an extra zing so I added two teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce and it was perfect. Will definitely make again! Hubby loved it and said it was restaurant quality.
