Vidalia Onion Casserole

This recipe comes from "The Lady and Sons, Too" cookbook by Paula H Deen. Paula owns the "Lady and Sons" restaraunt in Savanah, Georgia. The USA Today food critic voted her "top meal of 1999". A great side dish to serve with steak or pork! Southern cooking at it's best!

This one has an awesome flavor. Next time though, I am going to see if I can reduce the number of steps so that I don't have to dirty so many dishes.

I made this dish and took it to a dinner with friends. Everyone had seconds, it was a hit. It went together very easily and uses common ingredients. It smelled so good too while it was baking. I added another half cup of cheese just because I wanted to use the whole package, but it was fine.
