It's amazing how everyone becomes Irish leading up to St. Paddy's Day. You couldn't find a blog without stumbling upon a recipe for corned beef and cabbage (isn't corned beef a New York Jewish thing?). Sometimes the different recipes just turn into a big blur, and sometimes a recipe will stand out. Especially if it involves cooking with stout.
Anyway, I've cooked with Guinness before and this time the recipe I found adds it to my favourite soup - French Onion Soup. I could tell right away that the recipe was going to be tasty. The primary difference between this particular onion soup and a standard French onion soup is the beer and substituting the swiss cheese with an extra-old cheddar. It's a different flavour, but it's excellent.
