Sauteed French Onion Casserole
Serving Size / Yield
- 4 large white or yellow onions, thinly sliced
- 1/4 C. butter, divided
- 3 T. all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt

In a large skillet, sauté onions in 2 T. butter until tender. Sprinkle with flour. Stir in salt and pepper. Add the consommé and sherry. Cook and stir until thickened, about 3 minutes.
Pour into a shallow 2-qt. baking dish or individual baking dishes. Spread remaining butter on both sides of bread and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Place bread on top of onion mixture; sprinkle with cheeses. Bake, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
