At my husband's family gatherings this dish often shows up as an accompaniment to many meals. It is rich and tasty and can easily be doubled for a larger crowd. There are rarely leftovers. I don't know where the name comes from but it definately fits the group. Preheat oven to 350º.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 large white onions
  • 8 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 12 lb swiss cheese, grated
  • 1 (11 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
  • 13 cup milk
  • 12 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 5 slices French bread, 1/2 inch


  1. Slice onions into rings and sautee in 4 tablespoons of butter until translucent.
  2. Put the onions in a casserole dish. Top with a lot of ground pepper and the swiss cheese.
  3. Heat the soup, milk, and soy sauce and then pour the mixture evenly over the onions.
  4. Spread the remaining butter on the bread and cut into 1 inch cubes. Put the cubes on top of the casserole butter side up.
  5. Bake at 350º for 30 minutes or until the bread gets dark golden. Serve warm.

Enjoyed this very much! didn't have shredded swiss so used slices instead and lots of fresh ground black pepper.

This was so different from anything I could have imagined. The flavors were good together, but just didn't have the substance I thought it would. The onions were a little mushy so I would not cook them as long next time. Liked the addition of the swiss cheese. Needed some zip to it. Thanks for sharing. Made for SSC Pet Parade.
