I made these onions last weekend and they were awesome!

Tennessee Onions

2-3 whole Vidalia onions or any sweet onion will do

4 tbsp stick unsalted butter

Garlic salt to taste

Pepper to taste

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese the better quality, the better taste

1 cup mozzarella Cheese

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Fresh oregano or other herbs for garnish

Using non-stick cooking spray, prepare a 9x13 baking dish.

Heat over to 350°.

Slice the Vidalia onions in 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices and separate the rings. Lay the rings in the prepared baking dish.

Sprinkle the onion rings with garlic salt (about 1 tsp), pepper (about 1/2 tsp).

Cut the butter into pats and place around the dish on top of the onions. 

Spread the cheddar and mozzarella cheeses on top of the onions and then top with the grated parmesan cheese.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until bubbly and the cheese has started to brown.
