One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it can be assembled the night before. These squares have appeared on many a lunch table, but my family also enjoys them for breakfast.

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add yeast mixture. Combine sour cream and eggs; stir into flour mixture until a smooth dough forms (do not knead). Cover and chill overnight.
  2. Roll dough to fit a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in baking pan. Form a rim around edges; set aside. In a skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Remove from the heat; stir in remaining topping ingredients. Spread over dough. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 8-10 servings.
