I have always loved the rich, multi-layered flavors in the broth of a good French Onion soup.  With beautifully caramelized onions swimming in broth that has beading of taste blasting across the top? Float a few croutons and top with some cheese, only to lightly broil it for texture and additional flavor?

Marvelous idea!

This Hearty Guinness French Onion Soup is the new version of the classic bowl of love, it’s home made french onion soup with an Irish twist!

A lil’ Guinness beer has been added and then the blessing of being slow cooked to allow the flavors to marry each other. We like a smoky cheddar cheese, preferably Irish, atop this tasty soup and you have a gem fit to share with any local of the Emerald Isle.
