Latvian Style Baked Onions

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

This is one of a number of historical recipes I am posting from my cookbook collection. It is adapted from the 1953 edition of Adventures in Good Cooking, by traveling salesman and food critic Duncan Hines, and featuring recipes collected from around the USA. This recipe is from Allison's Wells in Way, Mississippi. Butter may be substituted for the bacon drippings. Recipe does not specify an amount for the butter or the type of cheese, only "mild."

If you love onions, you'll love this. It's simple, yet really delicious. I used big, sweet onions for this. I used a bit extra cheese than called for. This is a great side dish when you want something different. Thanx!
