"This recipe had a very good flavor. I felt like it bordered on being a little heavy on the sherry so next time I'll start with 1/8 cup, taste and add accordingly.. I think I cooked the onions almost an hour on low to medium and they were nice and soft. I burned a few of the bread crumbs under the broiler, so I will be sure to watch it more carefully next time."
