      Yowza! I used this as a filling for blintzes yesterday, and it was dreamy, creamy and delicious. I had some ready-made blintz leaves just sitting in the freezer, filled them with the cheesy onions, fried them and served some onions as a topping. Served them with some Israeli salad, crusty bread with lots of butter. Comfort food with a capital C. Thanks Steingrim, you've just upped my repetoire up another notch!

      Oh yum! I love these! :) They're great as a rich side dish, or as a steak topper (add a bit of crab to make it extra special). I haven't tried them as a blintz filler - that'll be next!

      Love onions - reviews sounded great - REALLY dissapointed!!! Nice sauce, but no pizazze, just a cheese sauce with onions. This one is off our list.
