  1. Peel onions a trim slightly at the top and bottom. Boil the onions gently in salted water until tender (about 30 minutes).
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter one shallow baking dish.
  3. Saute the sliced mushrooms in the butter or margarine. Stir in the flour. Stir in the half and half or milk, salt, sage, 1/2 of the lemon peel and all of the lemon juice. Cook, stirring over medium heat until sauce thickens.
  4. Place the cooked onions in the prepared baking dish and pour the mushroom sauce over them.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 20 minutes. Sprinkle the top with the chopped parsley, remaining lemon peel and paprika to taste.

These were very good. I added some garlic in with the mushrooms. I would shorten the cooking time on the onions to 25 minutes.

These were good. They smelled fantastic while they were baking. I would reduce the amount of time that the onions boil. They were a little sweeter that I expected but it was a nice, different side dish.

These weren't everything I'd hoped they'd be. My mom and I made them when we had some friends over who were on a pretty specific diet. No one seemed too impressed by them, but they weren't bad at all. I would make them again if I needed to use up onions or something, but not just for the recipe itself.

Fantastic. I also prepared the dish the night before and baked just before serving. I omitted the lemon. Next time I might experiment with substituting sour cream for part of the cream. It seemed a bit "milky." I served it over perogis. Also, I didn't know what "small onions" referred to--pearl or shallots? I used shallots.
