Baked Creamed Onions

I often fix this comforting dish for my grown children when they visit. They love it when I double the recipe so they can take leftovers home! This recipe can be prepared a day ahead and refrigerated before baking.

    I even added cheddar cheese to the recipe, and still found it so, so in taste. Won’t make it again.

    This was absolutely delicious! I was a little sceptical about how this dish would turn out but everyone raved about how good it was. An awesome alternative to typical side dishes.

    Loved this dish. It is so easy to make and was a hit with the family. Like others have mentioned this is even better the next day! YUM!

    This is not just the best onion casserole, it's one of the best side dishes I have ever made. It really is even better the next day! I have not made it yet for anyone who didn't love it, and serve it at my most elegant of dinner parties!

    If you have too many onions- this is an excellent side dish. It could also be a great casserole topping if reduced just a little. All four of my children asked for more!

    Easy and quite tasty. Kind of tastes like onion rings. Great side dish. Can be made the night before and cooked the next day.

    Great Dish! It is just as good (if not better) warmed up the next day. I will be making this again.
