Walla Walla Onion Casserole

The Vidalias are just coming in. That is the sweet onion we have in this part of the country. While they are available all onion lovers should have an onion casserole. Here is one of our favorites.

Walla Walla Onion Casserole

Make this when you can get Vidalias or other sweet onions. It goes especially well with grilled steaks or roast beef.

5 cups sweet onions, chopped (We use Vidalias)
1/4 cup margarine or butter (you can use liquid Butter Buds.)
1 cup cooked long grain rice (white or brown)
1 cup sour cream, low or non-fat – ok
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese (preferred) or 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Sauté chopped onions in skillet until tender but not browned. If using Butter Buds either parboil or microwave onions until translucent.

Stir in rice and sour cream. In a non-stick sprayed 2 x 8 x 12 inch casserole layer half the onions and half the cheese; repeat layers.

Cover and bake for 30 minutes at 350°F. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Serves 6 to 8.

NOTE: This can be very low-fat if using liquid Butter Buds and non-fat sour cream. We think it is best using Swiss but either works well.

Walla Walla and Texas Sweet onions work well in this casserole but we seldom find them here.
