Sweet Onion Spoon Bread Recipe

This unique recipe has been a family-favorite secret for years. The layers of tangy cheese, sour cream and sweet onions in this moist corn bread taste so great together! Chopped green chilies could add some fun zip. —Heather Thomas, Fredericksburg, Virginia

"A very good recipe...slightly different from your average corn bread pudding recipe. We ate this with chili. Make sure your onions have cooled off before adding to the sour cream...mine were hot and the sour cream sort of curdled. Next time I may stir everything together rather than layering as I wasn't crazy about biting into an entire layer of onions at once."

"This was good and had good flavor. I used lowfat cheddar. I probably wouldn't make on a regular basis."
