This is a casserole my mom made when we were growing up. I don't have any idea where she got the recipe, I just know it was the one thing I would always ask her to make for me. I still make it but as empty nesters I cut the recipe in half. The onions give it a unique flavor. It is so easy to make and just a few ingredients are needed. Hope you will try it and enjoy.
