This is really good. I did it with only one large spanish onion. I used some juice of a can of diced tomatoes cause I needed only 1/8 cup. I reduced the amount of brown sugar by half. I'M glad I did. Very easy to do. The onion was perfect and tender after 1 hour in oven. Thanks Shelby :) Made for PRMR tag game

This recipe is a wonderful find! I also love creamed onions as bluemoon does, and I thought I may add some cream to the recipe; but, I resisted, and I am so glad as the flavours were clever and intense - without the extra guilt of cream! I only used 3 onions for the two of us, and we ate them for a light supper with French bread and mixed salad - DIVINE! Made for Photo Tag and the Halloween Special in the month of October! Merci - a keeper for me! FT:-)

I fancied a slightly creamy sauce on the onions so I added 1/4 cup of creamy Greek yoghurt to the other ingredients in step two. I also put the onions in a dish where they had no opportunity to collapse (if they were inclined to do so) which meant that the creamy sauce was more contained. After the hour in the oven, I lowered the temperature and kept them in the oven for an extra half hour. There's nothing worse than onions not being quite cooked enough! I loved them (a great blend of flavours), but there were mixed responses from my guests. After all, not everyone loves onions. These were served with a chicken dish and mashed potatoes.
