DURING my teen years, I lived on my aunt's farm in Illinois. This was one of her delicious dishes, and one of many I enjoyed. I'm so happy I got the recipe and later made it my own family's favorite. It's a wonderful side dish to complement any meat entree. -Phyllis Jean Sheeley, Altoona, Illinois
- 3 large onions, sliced
