Top Review by Bergy

This is a super recipe - raved about by my guests- I made the French Toasts the day before and the onion mixture in the Am- Just before serving I smeared the onions on the toasts , added the cheese and baked them in my toaster oven. I recommend that you use sweet onions - I have used both but the sweet are just right. Thanks Pixie I have made this recipe twice already and am going for the third time now - great easy, tasty recipe
