directions

  • In two batches, sauté the onion in the butter in a large frying pan. Cook only until limp. Do not brown or discolor.
  • Deglaze the pan, or remove the onion from the pan and pour sherry, scrapping the pan with a wooden spoon to dissolve the brown, toasted onions.
  • Mix the onions, the sherry, nutmeg, salt, pepper and heavy cream together and place in a baking dish. Top with the Swiss and then Parmesan or Romano.
  • Bake at 350 until top is a bit brown and bubbling, 15 - 20 minutes.

    Oh My Goodness were these good. Dana this is my favorite recipe of the Tour so far. These onions are awesome. Soft and tender, perfectly cooked and nestled in a delicious sherry cream nutmeg sauce studded with swiss and parmesan cheese. I was in the taste bud zone, they are that good. When they were all gone, I still wanted more. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I have placed in My Favorites Cookbook for 2012. Kudos .... Made for the Fearlless Red Dragon's - ZWT8 - France.

    This recipe was very easy to make and quite a unique side dish. I made it for a dinner party for 10 and it got rave reviews from all - everyone wanted the recipe. The sherry does make a huge difference in taste - excellent served with pork roast.

I love trying new dishes. For me, food is a way of experiencing the world without leaving my home, and I'm hoping that as my two sons get older that I can convince them to come with me on my culinary adventures.
