Savannah's Famous Pirate House Onions Au Gratin
Those terrific shriners are selling their classic Vidalia Sweet Onions again. Just once a year these special guys hit the streets with a trailor load of Vidalias. This is one of our favorite recipes for Videlias, taken from an old Folsom Farms Cookbook.
5 cups Videlia onions, chopped, cooked & drained
5 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
6 Tbs Butter
Chop onions, put in a saucepan and cover with water. Cook until just tender.
Melt butter in the bottom of your 2 quart casserole dish.
Drain onions and mix with 4 cups of Cheddar cheese and remaining ingredients.
Pour into your 2-Quart casserole; Sprinkle with your final cup of cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
We served this wonderful side dish with a smoked pork loin from our back porch electric smoker. If you haven't bought yourself or hubby one yet, it's a perfect gift.
