This was wonderful. I've made it multiple times and have always gotten compliments on it. I use mozzarella and parmesan instead of cheddar (just because it was all I had), but I'm sure it would also be great as written.

this was a very tasty side dish. I used about 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Did not measure, just grated it into the pan with the sauted onions. I would suggest you microwave onions about 2 minutes, stuff the onions and then nuke about 5 mins so as not to overcook the onions. I thought the onions were a little overdone but was delicious anyway.
