Walla Walla Sweet Onion-Swiss Cheese Casserole

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 25 mins

A nice side dish for roast beef or ham. Use Walla Walla Sweets or Vidalia's for this. Regular yellow onions aren't sweet enough.

This was a great side to have with our roasted pork tenderloin. I cut the recipe back to serve 2 and used Ritz crackers instead of Saltines since that is what I had. I think next time I will try a combo of swiss and maybe mozz or cheddar (DH thought it was too much swiss, though I loved it!). Made for 2011 Football Pool Win.

I made this dish for Thanksgiving last year (like we needed an extra sidedish). I used yellow onions, fat free half and half, and added a half pound of crisp-cooked bacon that I crumbled and layered in. This dish was a huge hit and I am defintely making it again this year!

Entirely luscious! The contrast between the smooth rich onions and the crunchy topping is outstanding. I served this with 2Bleu's Recipe #275179. Great combination.
