The onion amt. is in error. Either the writer used a sweet vidalia onion (my guess) or they lost their tongue in the war. Use 2T or less grated raw onion or you suffer onion overkill. Traditionally in the south this is made with Velveeta cheese which is why folks my not find it tasting like mom made. It makes the recipe taste sweeter.


Not at all what I was expecting: I was looking for a cheesy filling/spread for my sandwiches, and I got a yellowy onion smelling mush. I tried to eat it, though, but I couldn't have a second bite: I was feeling like munching in an onion. The good point is my girlfriend wasn't close to me at that time (actually, nobody was close to me), for I think she might have wanted to break up with me only because of my breath ;). I may have done a mistake, but I think a whole raw onion for a pound of cheese is WAY too much. Sorry.


This was a delicious and fast recipe. I had this in Kentucky this spring and couldn't wait to get the recipe. Wonderful on crackers!
