  • “Cooking onions brings out their sweetness.The bit of additional honey in this recipe put it over the edge.It is so simple and really tasty.I really like simple veggie dishes and this filled the bill.Glad you posted it Christine.Thanks”

  • “I used two Vidalia onions, cut into quarters & placed them in a baking dish with a pork loin – baked them at 325F, occasionally basting the onions & the pork with the juices.The honey added a wonderful flavor to both the onions & the pork.Very good recipe – thanks for posting! -M”

  • “we all love onions and the sweetness of the honey really accents the flavor without over doing it”

  • “Nice easy recipe!The first time I made them I thought the honey was overpowering.So next time I increased the butter and reduced the honey, and we loved them.Great side dish.”

  • “Yeah !!!This recipe was easy and very simple to make.My husband absolutely loved it !!!I will definitely make it again.”

  • “These were ok. I used white onions and cut the honey down a little as some suggested. Maybe next time I’ll try vidalia’s.”

  • “I only used 4 onions and and that may have contributed to the extra sweetness…these were tasty, but almost tasted candied to me. I think next time I will cut the honey a bit.”

  • “I made these tonight to accompany baked chicken and they were awesome.Made exactly as written .I used 4 extra large vidalia onions.I will be making these again .Thank you.”

  • “Excellent onion recipe!Thanks.It was so easy and the onions tasted creamy.This is a great dish for all of us onion lovers.:)”

  • “MMMMMMMM, tastes like candy!I used vidalia.”

  • “Love this!!I adore cooked onions and this was the best. My only complaint is that I didn’t make the full recipe (there’s only two of us) because I wanted more!I may make some for myself for lunch later on!Thank you for sharing your delicious recipe. :)”

  • “Oh wow! I made this for tonight’s dinner and I keep eating them–there’s almost no more left to serve! I made it with margarine instead of butter, as I am serving it with a meat meal and I do not eat dairy with meat for religious reasons. Still fantastic. Can’t wait to try it with butter!”

  • “Superb recipe – and extremely easy to make!I sliced up plain, ordinary old cooking onions, and separated out all the slices.I had to stir it at intervals throughout cooking, because any bits sticking up seemed to burn quite easily.But at the end of the cooking time, I gave everything a good stir, served it as part of a tapas spread, and it was fabulous.Sweet, mellow, soft, luxurious onions – with a gorgeous sauce that was lovely mopped up with crusty bread.I will definitely make this again and again, and plan to use it in my Christmas and New Year entertaining.”

  • “Very tasty but very rich.I will try the recipe again and use less butter.”

  • “I made these last night for a side dish with chicken and au gratin potatoes.(I cheated on them. They were boxed)This was so good. When my fiance come home he was like MMMM whats that! Wasnt sure if he would like them. He’s picky. But he loved him. I put them on top of my potatoes. DELISH! I went back for more. I will make this when I am dieting but use smart start butter.”

  • “Not enough stars for this tasty & easy to fix recipe! Motivated by NimrodCook’s lovely pic, I served them as a side-dish at a dinner party last nite. I loved them & so did my guests. I used halved med-sized white onions, basted them w/sauce twice while cooking & they were perfectly done in 45 min in my convection oven. The onion layers puffed as they cooked, separated slightly & browned to create an almost rose petal look that was lovely. This is a must try for onion lovers & a new favorite for us. Thx for sharing this recipe.”

  • “Very tasty, but almost too sweet for our tastes. I did as suggested by others and only used 1/2 of the honey to cut it down a little. We ate these as a side dish, and maybe that’s why they tasted too sweet, maybe would cut the taste a little to serve over a steak. To reduce the dirty pots in the kitchen, I microwaved the butter and honey for 30 seconds to melt it together & it worked just fine. Thanks for the recipe!”

  • “I love baked onions and make often.I was disappointed by th honey I used in this dish.I used a local mountin honey.”

  • “I made these delicious onions as a side for Thanksgiving dinner. They just melted in your mouth. One must like onions in order to appreciate this delicious side dish. Thanks Christine.”

  • “Excellent.I used a 10 oz bag of pearl onions for this and they turned out great.Like eating carmelized onions. Made a great size for my Teriyaki Beef Kabobs. Thanks so much.”
