TNT: Vidalia Casserole

We had this with grilled steaks today and it went so fast I was amazed.. I found this here:

Onion Casserole - An Onion Casserole Recipe with Swiss and Parmesan

Will make this again and often during the summer with grilled meat.

Here are the changes I made to the recipe:
I used flavored croutons (garlic /parmesan) 2 bags
instead of swiss cheese I used a good sized bag of of diced Italian cheeses, mozz,monterey jack, provolone. I also added about 3/4 cup of fresh grated parmesan to the cooked still hot onions, and used more mixed with the other cheeses to top the casserole...I also used a cube of melted butter to tossed the croutons in..and cream sherry instead of reg. sherry.I did this ahead of time, recipe called for the recpie to be served right after melting the cheeses on top. It worked just fine this way. I did make a larger amount for my gang used 8 onions so just about doubled everything in the recipe.
This turned out with a mild onion flavor, slightly sweet from the onions and cream sherry, it was creamy and perfect with the steak and salad and fruit. Even the kids enjoyed it...This will come up as Onion Casserole..NOT vidalia casserole...

Thanks for the reminder - I used to make a very similar dish and haven't made it for so long!!

Onion Gratin

4 cups onions -- sliced (3 large white)
5 T. butter
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
2/3 cup Parmesan Cheese -- grated
Salt & Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425°

Sauté the onions in butter until transparent and place in a buttered 1 1/2-qt. au gratin dish or flat casserole.

Beat eggs until light; add sour cream and salt & pepper and combine; pour over onions and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top begins to brown. Serves 8


Description:
"This makes a wonderful side dish for just about any meat or poultry."

adding a few croutons sounds good!

cjs,
I like the sound of your recipe. Will have to give it a try. I know the family will enjoy it. The croutons when I added them I wasn't sure about..But they became soft and creamy from the onion juices and the sherry and broth. I like the addition of the croutons and will add them again next time..

Sizz,
actually the recipe just calls for sherry. I had cream sherry on hand and decided to use it as I like the slightly sweet flavor of it. Mixed with the sweet onions, it really peaked the casserole..I hope you get a chance to try it. It is yummy.

Unfortunately my DH doesn't like cooked onions and peppers that he can see. Other than that he isn't picky about anything else.

It's funny - I have never heard of people baking Vidalia Onions as a side dish. I've never heard about it from family or friends. It wasn't until I joined this site that I heard many people around the US talk about how much they love Vidalia Onions and preparing them as you guys are talking about now.
