Absolutely yummy! I added a bit of fresh nutmeg to mine. This is basically a crustless onion quiche and it is SO flavorful! Be sure to drain all of the butter/oil off of the cooked onions before adding them to the cream mixture. Sprinkle sweet paprika and dried parsley over the top for lovely color. Read More

A great side dish! A unanimous Easter dinner hit! No leftovers and the recipe went home with two happy families. I think next time I just might try decreasing the amount of butter by 1-2 tablespoons. (Howevewr I can always go back to the original recipe if that is not satisfactory.) Read More

I made this as a side dish for Passover dinner and it was delicious. The only adjustment was I used fat free half and half instead of cream to cut down on calories. Read More

Made this last night and was pleasantly surprised! Tasted really good. I think I could've sliced more than 4 cups worth though. I'm glad I used a 1 1/2 qt instead of a 2 qt casserole dish. I should have probably used a 1 qt dish. Be sure to use the 2/3 cup Parmesan. It gives a nice crunch. Read More

Used FF half-n-half added a squirt of dijon and a little Frank's Hot Sauce. YUM. This would make an excellent starter for macaroni and cheese or thickened up a good dip. Read More
