I FOUND this recipe in the newspaper many years ago. It has been a family favorite ever since. Since it goes well with any meat, it's a good "dish to pass" for family gatherings or potluck suppers. Someone will always ask "Who brought the onions?" -Louise Elliott, Gallipolis, Ohio


  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Slice onion and separate into rings; place in a greased 1-qt. baking dish and set aside. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Stir in the flour and salt until smooth. Gradually add milk; bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese until melted.
  2. Pour over onions. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until onions are tender and cheese is browned.
