This is my absolute favorite dish that my mom makes. The onions have a mild sweet flavor, and there's plenty of the rich creamy sauce. The sweetness makes a nice complement to the Peppered Beef Tenderloin. -Denise Bitner Reedsville, Pennsylvania

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
