Yum. What a great way to prepare onions as a side dish! Made the house smell SO GOOD! Tastes just like French onion soup. Because I prefer sweet onions and didn't have them on hand, I added a small amount of brown sugar to the broth for extra sweetness. Otherwise prepared just as posted! Thanks for a keeper recipe.

Yum! This was delicious - definitely a recipe to "wow" company! Smelled heavenly while cooking too - we could hardly wait for it to finish baking. We didn't have sage, so we mixed a little garlic powder in with the broth instead. Also, the broth reduced down to nothing, so I might add a little water next time. Otherwise, this was perfect!

Very easy and delicious recipe. We're on a diet, so this seemed like an extravagance even though it wasn't. Yum!
