We really enjoyed these dampers. Savoury with a hint of sweetness from the caramelised onion, made for a lovely side to our leek and potato soup. I made exactly as written, but next time, I will bake for a little less time. I baked these for 35 minutes and they were just a fraction overdone. Staying true to all damper's this is best served on the day, ad the next day they are a little dry, even when reheated. But they are delicious when served fresh and warm!
