This is it – our very last CSA pick-up for the season! It’s been a wonderful season. The shares were plentiful, the quality was excellent, and the company was great! I’ll miss you all until next spring. But wait! We have a potluck dinner on Tuesday, December 3. You don’t want to miss that. Everyone is in a rush at the site. This is our chance to sit down and socialize in a decidedly relaxed and happy atmosphere.
Today’s recipe is for a sweet onion casserole. By now we all have onions. Try this!
- 2-3 whole Vidalia onions or any other sweet onion.
- 4 TBS (1 stick) unsalted butter
- Garlic salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- 1 cup good quality sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- ½ cup parmesan cheese
- Fresh oregano or other herbs for garnish
Using non-stick cooking spray, coat a 9×13 baking dish.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Slice the onions in 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices and separate the rings.
Lay the rings in the prepared baking dish
Sprinkle the onion rings with garlic salt (about 1 tsp), pepper (about 1/2 tsp).
Cut the butter into pats and place around the dish on top of the onions.
Spread the cheddar and mozzarella cheeses on top of the onions and then top with the grated parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown.
Remove the casserole from the oven, allow to cool for a few minutes. Garnish with some fresh herbs (oregano, chives, thyme all work well) and then serve.
HELPFUL HINT: Be sure to cut the onions in uniform slices, and use the best cheese you can afford.
That’s it! Enjoy, and have a lovely, warm, happy winter. And don’t forget the potluck on December 3. I’ll miss you all like a front tooth!
Have a delicious week!
