Sedona Orchards' French Onion Soup

Recipe by Galley Wench

This is classic French Onion soup with a twist. The recipe comes from the Orchard's restaurant in Sedona, Arizona. It's a big recipe but obviously can be cut down.

I chose to make this dish for moan & groan over the best comfort food ! This is a twist from what I am use to having. Step 2 is what realy makes this soup different and good. I look forward to making this again. Excellant.
