Sweet Onion Bake

"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!

    What a great way to enjoy those wonderful, sweet Vidalia onions! I used fat free half and half and I agree it's still wonderful. The only crackers I had were Ritz, so I used them instead of saltines. Thanx for shring this recipe. It's a keeper!

    Our neighbors invited us over for hamburgers and I decided at the last minute to take this dish. WOW am I glad I did. Everyone loved this great onion bake. I had all the ingredients on hand and it was a snap to make. We all loved the swiss cheese and onion combination. You did it again, Leslie in Texas.
