Made this tonight with one of our favorite steak recipes. We were just not impressed and rated it a 5.5 out of ten. I have a grilled onion recipe that is much easier and quicker that I think tastes 100 times better. It just seemed to miss the mark.

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
Check the ingredient label when purchasing feta. Look for feta packed in water; it has a more pronounced flavor and tastes fresher.

Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes. Carefully turn onions over with a spatula; bake an additional 30 minutes or until onions are soft and liquid has almost evaporated. Remove from oven.
