Great recipe! I made half the recipe, but used 1/2 cup diet cola and just a dash of vinegar. It tasted just like french onion soup! The cola took the place of the liquor I would normaly use and was perfect! I topped mine with homemade crutons and grated parm cheese. Doing half a recipe made the perfect amount for a side dish or appetizer sized portion for 2. Easy and tasty...my kind of recipe!

I have to say I was to say the least amused with the cola in the recipe and then not only that I used diet cola - I did add 1 tsp of splenda and the taste was great - the onion just comes right up I used fresh parm and it was great
