RECIPE: Blue Cheese Onions Gratin
I just typed this up for a friend of mine and so I thought I'd post it - its really quite yummy. I've made it a few times and we just had it last night with steak. Thanks, Debbie814 for surprising me with the gift of this cookbook a while ago, it was a great surprise!
BLUE CHEESE ONIONS GRATIN
(A zesty accompaniment to grilled or broiled steak)
2 large Spanish onions (about 1 pound)
6 ounces blue cheese, broken into pieces
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temp
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 425 and position oven rack to the center of the oven. Generously butter a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Slice onions and place evenly in prepared baking dish. Mix remaining ingredients together and spread evenly over onions with a spatula.
Bake at 425 for 20 minutes, then broil briefly until top is browned and bubbly. (Watch carefully to avoid burning.)

Woodie's Notes: I would say I "dollop" the cheese topping on, rather than spread it with a spatula and I have never needed to broil the top, it comes out fine for me after just baking so I omit that step, I don't think its necessary.
