French Onion Soup (with beer)
Anybody have any recipes for a french onion soup that uses beer and what kind of beer should I use? I was told a Guinness stout might be a good idea....
I would like to use Martha stewart's recipe but with beer and I'd like to know what changes I should make, do you think I can simply substitute the wine for beer?
