Both my mother and mother-in-law requested this recipe from me after eating it (the biggest compliment I could receive!). There's no chopping to do since the onions and celery are all in the soup. This is one of my standing dishes for the holidays, and everyone who tries it wants the recipe. Even people who never use canned soups have told me this is the dressing they're making from now on!

I skipped the eggs and chicken and used this to make my corn bread dressing for thanksgiving. The only thing Id do next time is lessen the amount of french onion soup, It wasn't to my tastes.
