Great side dish; especially when you want something different. I use a mix of sweet onions and red onions (leeks would work well, too). I skipped the crumbled bacon, and it still was great. Nice and cheesy. Thanx for sharing!

We really enjoy the taste of caramelized onions, so wanted to give this a try. Very nice. Unfortunately, it didn't set up quite how I expected, but still tasty. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag Game. :)

Made as a prize for the *Best of 2008* cookbook game, we liked this a lot but the recipe & prep did require a fair amt of tweaking to get a good result. As agreed, I made this as a casserole in a pie plate as the volume of ingredients & layering did not allow prep in 4 individual serving dishes & this generously serves 6 IMO. I used a mix of red + white onion & the onion was still crunchy after 4-5 min. I agree 45 min is too long to cook the onion & feel cooking them to the start of caramelising would be ideal + add a flavour boost. There also was an excess of sauce & I suggest reducing the milk amt by 1/4 cup. Changing to 6 servings + reducing the milk amt will also improve the nutritional data. Salt & pepper are matters of pers pref, but I found it in need of both & suggest tasting the sauce & adjusting S&P prior to assembly. Oven time was spot-on for melting the cheese + lightly browning & I suggest a rest time b4 serving to allow for best texture. For me in the future, I will prob do 2 more things: 1) Omit the bottom egg layer as it tended to get lost there, but was welcome atop the mixture & 2) Add an egg to the sauce mix to aid set-up & ease of serving. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. It is really quite good & I hope others will try it. :-)
