This came from my sister who got it from her sister-in-law at a family reunion. Onions have mild sweet flavor -- not over powering. Makes excellent side dish.

Highly Recommend this, would be wonderful for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it. It will be on the menu many time through the year. I did not have Swiss Cheese, so used Mexican Blend and it was great. Thanks

This was sooooo unexpectingly awesome!!!!!! One that my whole family enjoyed. Everybody thought it was a potato casserole.

Oh, so yummy! I must admit I didn't follow directions very well. I didn't saute the onions, I used a deeper casserole dish, and I didn't have any swiss cheese so I used a pre-shred mexican blend. None of that mattered though, because the end result was so tasty! Excellent idea! I will be making this as often as those bags of onions go on sale. Maybe even when they're not, because this is just that good. Thank you! ~Lana~
