      Great recipe. Was looking for something simple. Unfortunately managed burn the onion despite reading the note to be careful not to - but pressed on. Didn't have bread but grated the cheese straight into the soup. Was a little bitter from the burned onion - but still tasted good - so imagine it would be fantastic if made correctly.

      Excellent soup. Only thing was for me, it needed a little more salt. But other than that very nice and tasty. Made for ZWT4.

      Made for ZWT 4 -- Crockpot Challenge. Browned the onions in butter and oil until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Used the wine to deglaze the pan and added all ingredients to the crockpot. Set the pot on high for about 4 hours. I did add a bit of sugar to the onions while browing, other than that followed the recipe. Turned out great. Thanks Vicki for a winner!
