"Add a pinch of baking soda after the onions are softened and they'll caramelize quickly, making an even deeper flavor. The highlight of my Mother's Day Brunch!"

"Great recipe! I just served this to company this morning. Made two; added bacon to the first and bacon, green pepper, and mushrooms to the second. I also used fat free half and half. I will definitely make this again for company."
