I thought this was pretty good. I think I added a bit more sour cream, so I came out with something a little different, but still good. My boyfriend said he liked the dish better the next day. I'm sure I'll come back to this recipe to try && make it the way you stated.
Very, very good. Son thought it was a little too sweet, although I thought it was a little too lemon-y. Husband was too busy chewing to comment. :) We were all very pleased, and this is a keeper.
My mom makes this for parties/holidays and it is SOOOOO good. If you like onions, you'll love this dish.
