Tennessee Onions

The mighty onion. It’s incorporated in nearly every savory dish that’s made in my kitchen and, if I’m honest, I almost always add more than the recipe calls for. Raw, sauteed, grilled, or baked, I cannot get enough of them. So when I came across this recipe where onions were finally the star of the show, I knew I had to give it a try.

3-4 sweet onions, we used Vidalia

4 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1 cup shredded Italian blend cheese

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

½ cup shredded parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 350 F and prepare a 9×13 dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Turning the onion sideways, slice into ¼ inch rounds and separate the rings.

Spread onion rings in baking dish and sprinkle with the salt, garlic powder, and oregano.

Slice the butter into approximately 8 pats and place evenly across dish.

Sprinkle the Italian blend and cheddar cheese over the onions and then add the parmesan on the very top.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until cheese is starting to bubble and brown.

Serve while still hot!
