Vidalia Onion Casserole

5 vidalia onions, sliced as thin as possible
1 stick land O' lakes butter, land O' Lakes works the best
1/2 cup fresh parmesan cheese grated, more to your taste
20 Ritz crackers, crushed

Melt butter. Saute onions in butter until very limp. Sometimes I have to do 2 batches to get all of the onions. Layer in casserole dish with parmesan cheese.
Onion, cheese, ritz crackers
Onion, cheese, ritz crackers
Make as many layers as you need ending with crushed crackers. Adjust ingredients to your taste if you wish. Sometimes I'll add more cheese and/or crackers, bake at 325 for 30 minutes.

This looks amazing! One question, how much does this yield?

Allen,

We always put it in a 9x13" casserole dish, but I would assume you could make two small ones if you want. This would give you the chance to do each one a little differnetly and experiment.

I have and have made this recipe and my whole family loves it. Even the little kids...the onions and the parm are so good together...It always makesme sad when vidalia season is over and the last one comes out of the hanging pantyhose and is eaten

I am going to have to learn to save some for thanksgiving next year...

I'd think any sweet onion could be used. Texas sweets, Walla Walla, St. Augustine sweets and there are probably others also. If none are available, I would use yellow onions, slice them and put them in salted water for a couple of hours then drain and dry and proceed with the recipe. The soaking in salt water removes some of the sulphur and makes them a little sweeter.

That sounds awesome! Ritz crackers make such a great topping for casseroles. I don't think you'd have to have Vidalia's...any sweet onion would be good for this recipe.

I really haven't tried it with any other onion. But if I did, I would definitly use a few more onions since the vadalia's are so large. Hope you guys enjoy it. I know it is one of my family's favorites.
