Sweet Onion Soup

This is a recipe I found online so many moons ago that I can't give credit where it is due.
This is supposed to be a copy cat of Outback's Walkabout Soup. (and it's pretty close if I do say so myself!)

2 C Yellow sweet onions. Thinly sliced

2 tablespoons butter

1 (15 oz) can chicken broth (I have used Vegetable broth too)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon fresh pepper, ground

2 chicken (or veggie) boullion cubes

1/4 cup velveeta cheese. Cubed.

1 1/2- 1 3/4 cup white sauce

White Sauce

3 Tablespoons butter

3 Tablespoons flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cup milk

Directions: For white sauce

in sauce pan melt butter and add flour. Cook on medium heat until the flour turns thick and comes away from the sides of the pan.

pour milk into flour mixture a little at a time, stir constantly. Add salt. Mixture should become like thick pudding.

Set aside from heat until ready to use for soup.

Directions: In 2 quart saucepan place 3 tablespoons butter and sliced onions.

Cook at low to medium heat stirring frequently until soft and clear but not brown

Add chicken broth, boullion cubes, salt, pepper, and stir until completley heated thru

Add white sauce and Velveeta. White sauce will be thick because it has been removed from heat.

Simmer on Med/Low heat until cheese is melted and all ingredients are blended, stirring constantly.

Turn temp to low/warm and let cook for additional 30-45 minutes
