French Onion and Swiss Cheese Cups

Lora DiGs


Found this recipe years ago never made them because my son is not a fan of onions...decided to finally make it and to my surprise he took one of these cups and ate it with no complaints! If I didnt see it with my own eyes I wouldn't have believed it. Rest of family loved them too.
