Why this is so special is because the onions begin to caramelize  while they are baking. This caramelization brings out the sweetness of the onion.

This recipe might be a new recipe for you however, give it a try and try to convince yourself that you do not like it.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            What type of onion should I use for this side dish?

Any onion that is sweet, will work. I prefer to use the Sweet Vidalia onion. This should be sliced in thin rings, but leave the rings together.

            How long can I keep this side dish in the refrigerator?

Sadly, I cannot fully answer that. I am not lucky enough to have any leftovers after dinner. However, with a cream based sauce, the dish likely will only last 2 or 3 days in the refrigerator.

            Can I freeze this onion dish?

I do not advise that you freeze this dish. The creamy sauce will not be the same when it is thawed.
