  1. That looks fantastic and so easy. One problem…what if you need to replace the cup of wine because you can’t have alcohol? Could you use more water instead?

      • In real french onion soup A shot of Brandy is added at the very end to fortify the flavor. In case the alcohol from the red wine has long evaporated from the cooking. All thats left is the great flavor of the red wine. Great looking fish! Make’s me want to get my pole out!

  2. oh boy ! I love, love French Onion soup…and this one is awesome because it is ready in a flash ! wish I was in your kitchen
