Sweet Onion Bake

Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This is originally from a woman's magazine, but I can't remember which one. Anyway, it's a great side dish with steaks, roasts, or anything from the grill. It's one of my husband's favorites! I've also made it with fat-free half and half with good results.

This is an excellent recipe and a great side dish for any occassion (originally from Southern Living I think). Great variation is to use cheddar cheese, low fat milk, and top with cooked bacon (cracker crumbs can be placed on top or bottom). To die for!! Enjoy!
