onions, thinly sliced
light brown sugar
Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed and sliced with peel
fresh rosemary, chopped
I must admit I did change this recipe slightly. I did not add brown sugar, because carmelized onions are very sweet on their own, I didn't want it to be a dessert. I also peeled my potatoes, I just don't like the skin. I also did not add the rosemary, partly because I didn't have any and partly because I don't care for that either. But this is the only way I will make "escalloped" potatoes from now on. No dried up potatoes for me anymore. So creamy and flavorfull. My husband raved about these. A must for company or a pot luck if you want to show off! A+A+A+
This is a good, but high calorie, sidedish recipe. I would make it again, but not very often.
We loved this dish! I cut the ingredients in half as I was only making it for DH and I and I increased the cream, but only marginally. We will definitely make this again, and the only think I will change is the amount of brown sugar used. While it does give the onions a lovely golden colour, we found it to be a bit sweet. Next time I will only use 1 or 2 tbsp.
This recipe is awesome! I reduced the brown sugar to 2 Tbsp and used peeled russet potatoes. I also deglazed the onions with a Tbsp of Madiera. Took it to a dinner group and they all but licked the casserole dish!! It is definitely a keeper. Such a great change from the cheesey potatoes casserole that we always return to. Thanks so much for a great recipe!
This recipe is AWESOME! The first time I made this, my boyfriend loved it and said "I see this at Thanksgiving dinner...a nice change from traditional mashed potatoes"! We both loved the sweetness of the onions by using the amount of brown sugar suggested. We wanted even more onion in it! The only thing I would say is to use regular salt and pepper when layering the potatoes. The seasoned salt is not as strong. I actually made these once with hot and sweet sausage for an Easter brunch. I won the title for "Best Entree".
Very time-consuming but definitely worth it! I made these as part of my Dad's birthday dinner and he loved them! Fresh rosemary is waaaay better than the dried stuff - you won't get the same flavour without it. Excellent.
Followed directions exactly. Made with Lemon Chicken Tenders from this site and they complimented each other nicely. Thanks
We really liked this twist on potatoes. I used red and it made it way to sweet. I would definitly use the potato suggested and a little less sugar in the onion mixture. Liked the flavor alot.
