Baking enhances the natural sweetness of my family's favorite Vidalia onions. Perfect alongside beef entrees, this side dish has a similar taste to French onion soup.—Ann Yarber, Goldsby, Oklahoma

"Mine turned out nothing like the picture, and I'm sure that I did something wrong. Not keeping this recipe in my recipe box, not willing to try it again."

"These were so easy and really, really good. We had guests foir dinner and this was the first time I made these. I made extra and everyone of the onions were gone. I put them in a casserole dish and then covered it with foil--turned out great. Made more for a potluck and they too were given great reviews. It's a keeper."
