You should have seen my familys' faces when I informed them that I was making onion pudding.
They weren't impressed.
Until of course they tried some. Then they loved it!
My husband needed a burger along with it as he thinks that all meals require meat.
I really can't get enough of caramelized onions! Pair that with zucchini and cheese and you have pure deliciousness! This was one of my favorite meals. I only regret that there weren't enough leftovers!
