In a word: fantastic! I tagged in Veg*n Swap #5 along with recipe#336341. I cooked both at 400° for 45 minutes and the onions came out delicious. I am not a big fan of balsamic vinegar, so I cut it to 2 T and used dried thyme (little under 1 1/2 T). I also cut onions in 1/4's. The sauce ingredients are a winning combo. Even one of my kids liked the sauce on the brussels sprouts! I did too. The onions would be a great side to a roast or steak. But I could eat them alone. I put this into my book#234006.
