Another winner from "Hometown Cooking". People who don't like onions may just change their minds after one bite of this.

I LOOOOVE onions, and I was sooo excited to discover this recipe!! The only thing I changed is that I used mozzarella cheese instead of the swiss (personal preference). I used half and half, and the texture and flavor of this dish was just out of this world!! Thank you, yooper, for a wonderful recipe!:) ~Manda
