I learned a version of this recipe in Home Economics Class, many years ago...I created this one, I added the addition of bacon, as bacon is good anytime. I used vadalia onions, but can use any sweet onion...so good!

1Slice onions, trying to keep all about the same thickness , a mandolin works great and is so quick.

Over medium heat, in a large skillet, melt butter and add onions and pinch of thyme, can also lightly salt if you wish. Saute until lightly browned, stirring frequently.

2Sift flour, salt, onion powder and baking powder together.

Cut into flour, 3 tablespoons, butter, until crumbly. Into this add 1/2 cup milk, beat with a fork, just until incorporated, about 18 strokes.

Spray an 11 x 7 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Spread out batter evenly in bottom of dish. I lightly spray the top of batter and use an offset knife for this, whatever's easiest for you.
