A great recipe for any onion-lover, I reduced this recipe to only three onions, I also added in a little garlic powder and used seasoned salt and lots ground black pepper, this was wonderful, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)

The filling is so good! I used two largish Spanish Onions and one small Vadalia for the 5 year old. All three of us really enjoyed this side dish! If someone wants to make a lighter version of the dish it would still be wonderful without the cream cheese topping, just not as rich. Thank you Engrossed!

Very nice. The sauce makes this dish. Will add some cheddar next time.
