Golden Baked Onions Recipe

Golden Baked Onions Recipe

I love to invent new dishes, but I also enjoy making tried-and-true recipes, like my mom's baked onions. The onions are a rich and satisfying side dish with poultry and beef, but they can also be a meal all by themselves!—Chris Gaskill, Knoxville, Tennessee
