Thanksgiving is a day of total hedonism where we gorge ourselves silly and have enough left overs for an army! Cheesy Onion Casserole, a family favorite, is so delicious the left overs are always fought over and we have to evenly and judiciously distribute or else the army is at war.
Step 1: Ingredients
3 large sweet onions or 4 medium white or yellow onions
2 c. shredded Swiss cheese (8 oz.)
1 can cream of chicken soup, undiluted**
2/3 c. milk
1 tsp. soy sauce
8 or so slices of French bread
**You can substitute cream of mushroom soup for cream of chicken to make vegetarian.
Step 2: Slice onions
Melt butter in a saute pan over medium heat, and add onions. Saute onions until clear, a little brown is ok. In a shallow 2 qt. casserole pan, layer onions, 2/3 of cheese and pepper to taste.
Step 3: Assemble Casserole
In a sauce pan, heat soup, milk, and soy sauce, stirring to blend. Pour soup mixture in a casserole and stir gently to mix. Top with bread slices. Bake at 350 uncovered for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, top of bread should be nice and toasted.
Push bread slices under the sauce and top with the remaining cheese.
