Sweet Onions With Cheese

I made this last night and spooned some over cornbread that I had on-hand. This was a great main course, but minus the cornbread it would serve well as a side dish.

  • 2 sweet onions (softball-sized)
  • 1 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3 T. butter
  • 3 T. flour
  • 1-1/2 c. milk
  • 1 T. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • Black pepper to taste


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Peel and coarsely dice onions.
  3. Slightly pre-cook onions in a microwave at high for 4 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, melt butter over medium-low heat in a sauce pan.
  5. When butter has melted, add flour and whisk to mix thoroughly.
  6. Continue to heat, whisking frequently, until the roux is slightly browned.
  7. Add milk, a little at a time, whisking and heating until thickened in between additions.
  8. After all the milk has been added, remove the sauce pan from the burner. Add salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce.
  9. Arrange onions and cheese in layers in a greased 2 qt. casserole dish.
  10. Pour the sauce over the onions and bake for 50 minutes.
