  • “These are great! We really loved the mixture of cheeses. The blue cheese gave it just a little bite. Very easy recipe, for a great dish! Will make this again, and it will be on our Thanksgiving table. Thanks Virginia!”

  • “Holy Cow these are so good!Simple to make too I’ve already made them twice since I printed the recipe.Thanks so much for sharing this is sure to be a staple on our table!”

  • “These were outstanding! I love cheese with tabasco sauce and I love onions! Perfect. I’ve never used Velveeta before but suppose it helps give it the creamy texture. This was much better freshly made than as leftovers. I am sensitive to hot peppers and this was a little “hot” but I could handle it.”

  • “I made these to serve along side grilled hamburgers for DBF and myself. He actually said they were very good! Doesn’t usually comment on my cooking, so for me these are a keeper. I also used sliced onion as i was looking for a way to use up a very huge onion we were given. I had the leftovers on top of scrambled eggs for breakfast and that was really good also. Thanks for sharing your recipe:)”

  • “This a great way to fix frozen pearl onions.I substituted American cheese for the Velveeta, and I threw in a bit extra blue cheese;)I was a little worried that the 2 tbsp of hot sauce would be too much but it really isn’t….it’s not as spicy hot as you would think.I’ll make these again; thanx for sharing!”

  • “I used sliced onions rather than the pearl onions because that is what I had.My husband absolutely loved these.He said he had dreams about eating them after they were gone.I’ll be making these again soon.”

  • “This was very tastie except I used fresh onions and sliced them. very easy”
