Absolutely delicious. I cut the recipe in half, but left the 3 onions. My sisters love onions! And I have to admit, I really liked them in this dish. Don't stint on the time to cook the onions, they really do need at least the posted time to get properly caramelized. I wish I had gotten a photo, but it was eaten way too fast! Thnx for posting, tunasushi. Made for Fall 2008 My-3-Chefs.
