      i'd have given these a 5 but my onions never cooked- they tasted crunchy even after 20 mins of baking time. otherwise, we enjoyed this, and dd's dh etc, just pushed onions to the side. i did double the recipe and it went into a long pan and a round 2 qt casserole. cheesy creamy sauce. i will try this again, sauteing onions before adding more butter,the flour and the rest of the ingredients

      This was good. I think I might use more cheese nextime, and not use the breadcrumbs. The boys in the house loved it however.
