I wasn't expecting to like this, but I was "assigned" this recipe to prepare for Mother's Day. It was really good! I used garlic salt instead of regular salt, and doubled the amount, but other than that prepared as written. I turned the broiler on for about a minute or so at the end to brown the top. I will make again.

Very good. I think it might have been missing something--or maybe I might consider replacing the allspice with something else. But everyone had good things to say and there is none of it left! It was more work than I really wanted to do for one side dish, though.

Served this with balsamic glazed pork chops and roasted asparagus with lemon and Parmesan. Used a Seeds of Change basmati brown rice bag (uncooked) to save a step. Did caramelize the onions a bit. Nice taste...Maybe thyme instead of allspice?

This was delicious, the husband even went back for seconds. I did cook the onions longer than the 5 minutes suggested to caramelize them. I will make it again and can see using it as a great side for a barbeque. I like the idea of a few minutes under the broiler and will try that next time. This is a keeper recipe!

Turned out well. Directions are a little odd, and you dirty a lot of pans for this, but it was yummy. Didnt have allspice, sub'd a pinch of nutmeg. Used vidalia onions. Used pecorino romano instead of parm. Broiling a few min at the end made it look appetizing, but tasted a little dried out and hard to eat/serve. Served with Pork loin chops with cider pan sauce and apples (All You). Paired nicely.

Too bland. Perhaps caramelizing the onions ahead of time would make this better.

I did not enjoy eating this, it was like eating boiled onions. Caramelized onions are much better tasting.

Made this last night and even my non-onion eater child liked it. The onions turn out so sweet and with the wonderful gruyere and nutmeg it tastes more decadent than it really is. The serving size is very generous. Would highly recommend.

This was a perfect side dish to go with the grilled tuna burgers. Easy to make, simple ingredients with loads of flavor. Thank you.

This was an awesome new side dish. I will add a bit more salt next time but this is definitely company worthy!

I don't even like onions that much, but I loved this casserole. I definitely cooked the onions longer than the rocommended 5 minutes, more like 13minutes! But they got super sweet. As I didn't have allspice on hand, I omitted it. The portion size is very generous, I easily got 8 servings out of the recipe. Served with a roasted chicken breast and some broccoli. Excellent!

Not sure what I did wrong, but the rice didn't fully cook so it was a bit crunchy. Decent flavor with the cheeses but I probably will not make again.
