Made this tonight for our family and guests. It turned out very very good. However upon reading previous review, of it being bland, before adding cheese sauce, I put salt and pepper on the onions, and then after I put the cheese sauce and paprika on, I sprinkled chives on the top. I will probably make double the cheese sauce next time, just to add more substance. Not using as many onions next time (I don't have a food scale so I over guesstimated the 3 lbs of onions), this is a very good side dish!!!



My husband and I both love onions but, this receipe was very disapointing. Very bland.



It's hard to make a meal taste well when it's made mostly of onions. Considering that, it tastes pretty good. The cheese topping is especially good.
