Technically this isn't a French Onion soup, so..... I made it that way by carmelizing the onions and adding a touch of red wine. Although I do not drink wine, I keep a bottle in my refrigerator just for certain recipes. I kept tasting it and decided it needed something else, so I also added just a dash of worchestershire sauce. My husband absolutely loved it and said to keep the additions and to make it again. :-)

Very good soup recipe. I made this with the Goal Line Chicken Salad in the same issue.
