After baking the Carrot Cake - I lad leftover heavy cream...I hate to waste anything so here is a recipe using part of that cream. I am making a tomato soup with the rest...


• 8 medium yellow onions, peeled and sliced (let's hear it for a mandolin slicer!)
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 1/4 cup dry sherry or wine (I used Pinot Grigio... personal choice! ;-))
• 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
• salt and pepper
• little more than 1/4 cup heavy cream
• 1 1/2 cup grated swiss cheese
• 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese or romano cheese, for topping


Preheat oven to 350

In two batches, sauté the onion in the butter in a large frying pan. Cook only until limp. Do not brown.
Deglaze the pan, or remove the onion from the pan and pour sherry, scrapping the pan with a wooden spoon to dissolve the brown, toasted onions.
Mix the onions, the sherry, nutmeg, salt, pepper and heavy cream together and place in a baking dish. Top with the Swiss and then Parmesan or Romano.
Bake at 350 until top is a bit brown and bubbling, 15 - 20 minutes

Serve it up and put a fork in it!

Note: So after a day of cooking we were hungry and I didn't get a picture before we ate...SORRY!

Thought: to me these aren't good as leftovers heated in the microwave. The hub heated some up today in a skillet and that way was much better!

    This looks scrumptious! Yellow onions used to be our main crop years and years ago. Oh, how I miss that smell in the packing shed. Wish I had known about this recipe about 10 years ago. I will try it for sure.
    If you come across Mayan Sweets, they are a great onion. Not in season yet though.

  6. Hi Marti~ ~Where were you girl when I was looking for my Onion Casserole recipe this summer? I have misplaced so many recipes over the years. Now, I've got a system, Yeah. I'll have to post about it. Yours looks great.

    The dish, day after, speaks volumes as to how tasty this must have been.
    I'll have to give this a try. I make baked stuffed onions that are delicious but a lot of work. I'm going to try yours next time we have a beef roast. I hope you are having a great day.
