This one doesn’t have a Hough name yet, we call it the Onion Thing. It’s from Missy’s mom and even though we don’t like onions, we love this! (Maybe from all the extras?!) It’s a fun treat, not low in the fat category! : )
Follow link for recipe:
1/4 c melted butter, plus 2 T (divided)
3 medium sweet onions
2 c grated swiss cheese
1 1/2 c crushed saltines, divided (I use 1 sleeve, it’s close enough, and then I can crush them in the sleeve)
3/4 c light cream or half and half
1 t salt
1/4 t pepper
Melt 1/4 c butter in large skillet and saute onions until tender. Place half the onions in a 2 qt dish. Sprinkle one cup swiss cheese and half of the cracker crumbs over onions. Repeat layers of onions and cheese.
Beat eggs with cream, salt and pepper. Pour evenly over onion mixture. Heat remaining 2 T butter in skillet and stir in remaining cracker crumbs. Lightly brown crumbs, the sprinkle over casserole. Bake at 350 for 25 min. or until set.
