Baked Onions Au Gratin

This is recipe from my friend Judy that has always been a favorite side dish of ours. If you are making a filet of beef for the holidays, consider trying this. It couldn't be easier and is quite tasty.

Baked Onions Au Gratin

8 medium onions; peeled, halved and sliced into 1/4 inch slices (about 6 cups)
2 Tbls. butter or more as needed
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup dry cocktail sherry
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375*

In a large frying pan, over low heat, saute half the onions in 2 Tbls. butter, stirring occasionally. Saute until limp - 5-10 minutes. Do not discolor or carmelize. With a slotted spoon, remove to 1 1/2 quart baking dish. Saute remaining onions, using more butter if necessary. Add to onions in baking dish, along with cream, sherry, and pepper. Stir to mix. Top with swiss cheese and then the parmesan cheese. Bake until bubbly and the top is lightly browned - 15 - 20 minutes. 6 -8 servings
