French Onion Soup VII

"Beautiful French onion soup. Good for a cold evening or after a late night as a midnight snack. Alternatively, grill the bread and cheese first, and serve in soup or on the side. This keeps well; in fact, it gets better with time. Enjoy and experiment!"

My husband and I love this recipe. I'm vegetarian and he's not, and it provides us both with a hearty meal. Delicious!

Pretty darn good vegetarian French Onion. But the flavor obviously depends based on the wine you use. I used very watered down vegetable stock, so I added in 4 bay leaves and 3 shakes of Worcest...
