Onion Gratin TNT

Fall is sneaking up on us as well as the Turkey day Thanksgiving.And I won't have all the bounty from my garden so I'm starting with a tasty side I hope you will like. take 4 large onions and cut them into 1/2 " slices then you will need 1 Cup of Jaelsburg cheese, 1 Cup of half and half, salt and pepper to your taste ground mace to taste. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to boil. Drop in the onion slices and cook til tender.about 12 min.The slices should seperateinto rings as they cook. Drain in colander. Preheat oven to 375. When onion rings cool enought to handle, arrange half of them in a shallow2-qt. baking dish that has been lightly buttered Sprinkle with salt,pepper,mace, and half of the cheese Place the rest of the rings over the top and Once again sprinkle with, salt,pepper,mace and.the remining cheese.Now drizzle with the cream and bake 25-30 min til the cheese melts and the cream bubbles. Place under the broiler a min or two til the cheese lightly browns if you wish. Enjoy

Hi Z, I'd use a little nutmeg or just maybe some garlic powder. Just a little or it could be left plain. Enjoy.

This looks tasty. Is thanksgiving coming sooner to your neck of the woods than the rest of us. I TOO have TG on my mind. If I make some chicken with gravy this week, I was thinking about making stuffing/ dressing to go along with it. Just a little preview like yours.

However, I still have a good size hunk of Jarlsberg soooooooooo plans can change.

Mace is the outer thinner shell from the nutmeg nut. It's a little milder, which I prefer. Either is good.

Mace is the outer covering of the nutmeg "nut". The flavour is very similar, but more subtle. Use less nutmeg than the amount of mace called for.

Ma, I am not sure what we will be doing this year for Thanksgiving. It is the first without Dad and we used to have a combo dinner with him and my sister for Thanksgiving and my birthday. My sister will be away so I won't be cooking for my family.

I am sure there will be a gathering at some point with members of DH's family as it will be the 2nd birthday of the first great-grandchild....a very important day, specially for my in-laws. Because the family is so big we all pitch in on some part of the dinner.

I agree, that's a wonderful dish, thanks Kades . In fact it reminds me (well yours is a more posh version ) of a dish my Dad makes and he just calls it cheese and onion . Sounds so simple but it's delicious .

Mace is a lovely spice , under used I feel , but gives a lovely warmth to a dish, so I look forward to trying this .
