I love French Onion Soup. It's my favorite by far. This recipe is great but I had to tweak it to be excellent. First, I used all beef broth instead of water. Water will just dilute the favor. Second, when you're stirring in the sugar, add a clove or 2 of minced garlic and about 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme. I use dry white wine instead of red wine. I've tried both and white wine gives the soup a much better flavor. Last, after toasting the baguette and while it's still hot, rub both sides with a peeled garlic clove. Believe me, it makes a huge difference. Sometimes I use Gruyere Cheese instead of Swiss but either are great on this soup.
