Potato and Caramelized Onion Casserole

To cut down the cook time, start the potatoes while the onions cook. The eggs create a puffy look and add texture to the potatoes. Sweet onion varieties are Vidalia, 1015 Supersweet, Maui or Walla Walla. Dress up this dish with a sprinkle of cracked pepper, chopped parsley, or paprika right before serving.

This was the favorite dish of everyone at Gourmet Club this past weekend. The person who made it said it came out of a Taste of Home Holiday cookbook.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup butter, divided
1/4 cup olive oil
5 pounds sweet onions, diced
1 Tablespoon sugar
4 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cubed
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup fat-free half-and-half
1 cup light sour cream
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions:

Melt 1/4 cup butter in large skillet over medium heat.
Add oil, onions, and sugar.
Cook, stirring often, 45 to 50 minutes or until onions are caramel-colored (a deep golden brown).
Remove from heat and set aside.
Bring potatoes and chicken broth to a boil in a Dutch oven.
Cook 20 minutes or until tender.
Drain.
Add remaining 1/2 cup butter to potatoes and mash with potato masher until smooth.
Whisk together half-and-half and next 3 ingredients.
Add to potato mixture, stirring until blended.
Spoon half of potato mixture into a lightly greased 13 inch by 9 inch baking dish.
Spoon caramelized onions evenly over potato dish.
Spoon remaining potatoes evenly over onions.
Bake casserole, uncovered, at 350º for 30 to 35 minutes until golden.
(If casserole was chilled, bake about 15 minutes more.)

If not baking immediately, cover and chill up to 2 days if desired.
Remove casserole from refrigerator and let stand 30 minutes before baking.

Yield: 10 to 12 servings.


Although the recipe says this amount serves 10-12, I think it could easily serve 20. We had 9 people with more than half of it left over. Many of us had seconds and thirds, so I highly recommend cutting the recipe in half, at least the first time you make it.
