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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 6 large sweet onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 6 slices French bread (3/4 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  • 1. In a large skillet, saute onions in butter until tender. In a large bowl, combine the soup, milk, pepper and 2 cups cheese. Stir in onions.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Brush bread slices with melted butter on one side. Arrange buttered side up over cheese.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. If desired, broil 4-6 in. from heat until bread is golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"I thought this was ok, but my family loved it, so it must be just me. I think it needs a little seasoning other than pepper, so I might play with the ingrediants a little. I will also cut the recipe in half as this makes a lot."

"I love this recipe. See it pictured on my page. The bread is the perfect topping. I too have used croutons which is great but I prefer the bread. I have made this dozens of times and we never get tired of it. I decided to try it with broccoli instead of onions and that was gobbled up fast as well. Really versatile and yummy good. The last time I made it the poker guys said, "Is that your wife's onions? Oh good she made the onions!" Thank you Chris Gaskill

"My family loves this recipe! It is easy to make and delicious. It reminds me a creamy french onion soup. Everytime we gather for a holiday, my family and friends request that I bring this dish. The only thing I do differently is to use croutons on top, instead of the French bread. Thanks for sharing!"
