Onions are one thing I liked anyway you can fix them and this is an excellent side dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook onions in 2 Tablespoons butter in skillet until onions are soft but not brown, 6-8 minutes.
  2. Crush crackers (4 oz. is equal to one 1 sleeve).
  3. Add 1 tablespoon butter, 3 tablespoons milk and ½ cup cracker crumbs on bottom.
  4. Add onions and then cheese and crumbs on top. Bake 20 to 30 minutes at 350°F, uncovered.
  5. Note: I put a few drops of milk on top of crackers before I put them in oven.

I can hardly believe a dish this simple can taste so decadent! Like Parsley stated in her review, I added a little Swiss in with the cheddar cheese, and dribbled a little milk over it too. This was a nice "something different" addition to our Easter buffet yesterday. YUM!

This is fantastic way to eat big Vidalia onions! I made it just as written but used shredded cheddar and swiss (probably a bit more than one cup:). I took your suggestion of dribbling some milk on top before baking. It's even better as reheated leftovers! I'm going to make this again; thanx!

My DH just raved over this onion dish; and if he's happy then I'm happy. In fact, I really liked them too, and I'm not a big onion fan. I cut back on the cheese to about 1/2 cup and that was perfect. I spooned the onions into a small pie plate which held the mixture very well and cut back on the cheese to about 1/2, which we thought was perfect. My Honey will be looking forward to eating these soon again, and I give you all the credit and thanks, Jac.
