A wonderful change from the usual "French Onion." The taste will vary with different kinds of wine.

I served this for a Christmas party for 23 people. Everyone loved it! The only thing I did differently was let it simmer on low on the stove all day, and instead of the shredded swiss, I just used 2 thin slices of it that I threw in before it was served. Thanks so much!

I really don't understand how anyone could think this was bland!! The only thing I changed was using 4 cups vegetable broth and 4 cups water. It was soooo goood! Finally a vegetarian onion soup from scratch that is perfected!

Didn't like this recipe at all. Too much thyme and too much wine. Maybe it was because I made it in a larger batch size, but this soup just did not taste good at all.
