CHEESY ONIONS

This is a recipe my Aunt "Ninnie" made every Thanksgiving and Christmas, and it is still a tradition for me on holidays. She always made it with frozen onions with cream sauce (you can omit white sauce and just add cheese, sour cream and cream cheese if you can find them, but I can't find them up here). If you can't find the frozen pearl onions, you can use the raw onions in the little net bags; however, they are a lot of trouble to cook and peel. I've found that anyone who likes onions and cheese really likes this recipe.
