Hi Everyone!

Here we are, at the end of another CSA season. This one was a truly wonderful season. Shares were sizable, the quality was excellent, and seeing all of you each week was a delight. I’ll miss you all and will look forward to seeing you next spring. But wait! We have a Potluck scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, December 3. Don’t miss that! It is always fun and the food is outstanding, as everyone contributes something special to the meal. It also gives us a chance to socialize. People are busy and rushed at the site, and we’d love to get together in a relaxed atmosphere. Please come!

By now we all have some onions. This week’s recipe is one for sweet onions in a casserole that’s delish! The recipe calls for Vidalia onions, but any sweet onion would be excellent.



  • 2-3 whole Vidalia onions or any sweet onion will do
  • 4 TBS (1 stick)  unsalted butter
  • Garlic salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 Cup sharp good quality cheddar cheese
  • 1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh oregano or other herbs for garnish


1. Using non-stick cooking spray, coat a 9×13 baking dish.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
3. Slice the .onions in 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices and separate the rings.
4. Place the rings in the prepared baking dish
5. Sprinkle the onion rings with garlic salt (about 1 tsp), and pepper (about 1/2 tsp).
6. Cut the butter into pats and place around the dish on top of the onions.
7. Spread the cheddar and mozzarella cheeses on top of the onions and then top with the grated parmesan cheese.
8. Bake at 350 degrees, covered, for 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown.
9. Remove the casserole from the oven, allow it to cool for a few minutes, then garnish with some fresh herbs (oregano, chives, thyme all work well)  and then serve.
HELPFUL HINT: These are terrific on hamburgers.
ANOTHER HELPFUL HINT: Be sure to cut the onions so the slices are uniformly thick. Use the best quality cheese you can afford.
Well, that’s it. Stay warm and dry.  Have a wonderful holiday season and come back hungry next year.
Enjoy the dish and have a delicious winter!
