Simple, but flavorful. My husband pulled it from a cookbook we picked up on our honeymoon (pre-Katrina New Orleans). It originally called for red onion, and, sure, the first few bites were a flavor explosion, but then it just became too much. You like that? Use reds. You like a milder onion soup? Use Vidalia's. Etc.
