I'm not certain as to why this dish has the name it does but it certainly is good!! Some people have a hard time getting past using tomato soup as the sauce but just try it; you'll like it too!!

This has been a family favorite for decades. In addition to the onions, we also include diced green bell peppers and diced celery. I also add in a can of diced canned tomatoes.

I would love to know the origin of your recipe! My husband's grandmother used to make the same recipe, but with peppers, in addition to the onions. Love it!
