      This was a very nice Onion Soup, however, for our preference the grape juice made it just a little too sweet and I only used 1/2 the amount stated due to calorie concerns. I also used Provolone cheese as that is what I had on hand. Thanks for sharing. Made for Cookbook tage gaem in the Game Forum.

      Yay! My first french onion soup attempt and it was delicious! Easy to make with so few ingredients! I love the taste the grape juice brings. I used regular beef broth, but will try beef bullion for more flavor next time. Thanks!

      I wanted a quick and easy french onion soup recipe. I thought it odd to add grape juice but that it the beauty of this recipe. It gives that acidity with a common household item without having to go buy something special. Excellent recipe. Tastes great. I added more garlic because I love it and also some chives.
