Thanks, Vee!!!! I knew you would come to my rescue. I'm a nighttime
cooker. I'll do that shredding now, while I'm in the mood. I have a big
stockpot of soup cooling, and have to stay up anyway, before putting it into
containers. It just got finished.
In working on my daughter's MANUAL, I found quite a few recipes for using up
your onions. Here is one of them, which I've typed up for Lindsey:
ONIONS AU GRATIN
(from Taste of Home Magazine_June/July Issue_1997_a recipe of Christine
Halandras from Meeker, Colorado)
6 medium yellow onions
¼ cup butter or margarine
½ cup beef broth
½ cup whipping cream
2 T flour
¼ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
½ cup shredded Swiss cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
*Slice the onions into ½-inch thick rings; sauté in butter until tender.
*Place in a GREASED 8-inch square baking dish.
*In a bowl, stir broth, cream, flour, salt and pepper until smooth; pour
*Sprinkle with cheeses.
*Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheese is
golden brown and mixture is bubbly.
Now, I know that is a lot, but if you use that as your vegetable, or add
some to other vegetables you will be eating during a week's time, maybe you
could use up a bunch of those onions you have frozen.
Maybe this could be frozen into individual servings for future meals.
I have more for you...just have to type them up.
PS Thanks again for the cabbage clue!!!!
