This recipe is so reminiscent of creamed onions I had as a child, yet packed with so much more flavor. I love it with any beef dish as well as a side to boiled dinners and plopped on top of burgers.

  • 1 large onion, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shredded Dubliner Cheese


  • 1 Cut onion into 1/4­-inch thick slices; set aside. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • 2 When ready, place onion slices into butter and cook for about 1 minute on one side, or until it is lightly browned but still firm.
  • 3 Remove to an 8­-inch square baking pan, browned side up. You may need to add a little more butter and cook onion in two batches.
  • 4 When done, preheat oven to 400 ­degrees F. Whisk milk, cornstarch, black pepper, and salt together well. Fold in the cheese and pour over the onions.
  • 5 Bake 20­25 minutes, or until all cheese has melted, onions are softened and mixture is bubbling. Remove from oven to serve over your favorite burger.
