- 3 Tbsp

- reserve juice from boiled or canned onions
1Peel and cut onions (I halve them then cut in 4-5 pieces from there)
If you can find them (we can't get them here any more) you can use 2 or 3 cans of pearl onions instead of cooking reg. white onions)
Cover with water and a dash salt and boil until just tender. Drain into a colander over a large bowl and reserve 1/4 cup of the liquid.
2Meanwhile make white sauce by melting 3 tbsp. butter/marg. add 3 tbsp flour, gradually add the 1/4 cup reserved onion water and 1/2 cup of milk, stir constantly over med-high heat until thick. Add dash salt, pepper and onion powder.
3Pour sauce over cooked onions in a greased 2 qt casserole and mix until onions are all coated.
Butter 3 slices of bread and cut into cubes, place over onions butter side up in a single layer and bake at 350 for 25-35 minutes until bread cubes are crisp and lightly browned and sauce is bubbly.
