"1956" Stuffed Onions

Recipe by bbdll18

This is a recipe that my grandmother used to make and taught it to me. Ironically, it is from a home-economics book that she had in school wayyyy back in 1956. My children are reputed "onion haters" but devour these every time... I always have to make the entire recipe for just the 3 of us.
