    The taste was great, but there are so many things wrong with this recipe. <br/><br/>1. Total time 20 minutes, really? You have to cut up the onions, split them into rings and then make the milk, egg mixture and soak them for 30 minutes. It also takes a long time to deep fry that many onions and then bake for 10 to 15 minutes. That's a whole lot more than 20 minutes.<br/><br/>2. Six onions? What size onions? I used 2 large onions and had way too many for the suggested pan.<br/><br/>3. The amount of milk, egg mixture didn't come close to covering even half of the onions. I had to triple this amount and it still wasn't enough.<br/><br/>4. After putting them in the oven they were soggy.<br/><br/>If you make these, modify all your ingredients and be prepared to give up 2 hours of work and an extremely messy kitchen and don't bake them. Would not do this again, very disappointed in the recipe.

    I am giving this 5 stars, though I have to question the recipe a little. I used 2 big onions, and there was almost too much to fit into the loaf tin, so maybe some weights are needed. I am tending to think the other reviewer had the right idea, that is to serve after frying, or maybe spread on a tray and put in the oven, as mine were a little soggy after a stint in the oven. BUT having said all that, the taste was great, and the family have suggested it become a staple :)

    Who would have thought bisquick ! This recipe is great - makes a mess of the kitchen - but YUM ! They were good without even making the loaf and baking it LOL... maybe I will try that next time. Thanks for passing this recipe on to us....
