“Adapted a couple french onion soups to create an original recipe. Friends and family often request me to make this soup. It's a huge hit everywhere I take it. It's super simple but super delicious. Often recipes list a wine and say that you can substitute another wine if you don't have the one listed. For this recipe, however, the Riesling wine is KEY to it's flavor. I strongly suggest sticking with it for this recipe.”
