Onion Gratin

I could eat onions every day of my life.
I think I do.
I should write a poem about onions.

This is an original recipe from by Best of the Best Recipe Book, 2008

preheat the oven to 400 degrees

3 Large Vidalia Onions,peeled, cut in half and cut each half into thirds
4 Green Onions, the entire onion cut into 1" slices
Sea Salt
8 sprigs of fresh Thyme, strip the leaves off.
1/2 C White Wine
1/2 C Sour Cream
1 C grated Gruyere Cheese
1 C grated Parmesan Cheese
3 Cloves of Garlic, sliced
Olive Oil
9X13  Glass or Cast Iron Enamel Baking Dish
Aluminum Foil

Break Onion sections apart to create Petals
Place the Onion Petals and the Green Onions in the Baking Dish
Drizzle with a good amount of Olive Oil , Salt and Pepper
Toss in the Thyme and Garlic and mix well
Add Wine and cover with a double layer of Foil wrapped tightly
Bake for 45 minutes, remove Foil and continue baking for 25 minutes. THe Onions will start to caramelize
Once they look lightly golden, stir in the Sour Cream and sprinkle with the Cheeses
Turn the oven down to 350 degrees and bake 15 minutes more, or until golden brown.

Peace in the Kitchen!
