"A nice side dish for roast beef or ham. Use Walla Walla Sweets or Vidalia's for this. Regular yellow onions aren't sweet enough."

WOW! This was so tasty! I made it as directed and it is definitely a keeper! Loved the sweet onion and salty cracker combo. The custard like filling was perfectly set, creamy and enhanced by the texture of the cracker crumbs and caramelized onions. DH said he could have consumed the whole thing in one sitting, but I didn't let hime. I also used Swiss gruyere as I love the way it melts. Made for Billbard tag.
