No Thanksgiving is complete without a casserole and this one is literally as easy to make as it is to eat. With only a few ingredients and 30 minutes cooking time, it can easily be made between all the other more complicated Thanksgiving dishes.

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.
