These onions were absolutely delicous! My company just raved about them. I will make these onions again and again.

This recipe was just not that great for us. We rated it at a 6 out of 10. It smelled better than it tasted for us. There are way to many other recipes out there to do this one again in our opinion.

Tried this tonight and and we all loved it. We had some friends over and they wanted the recipe. I served them with a stuffed tenderloin and mushroom sauce. This would be a good side dish for special occasions or just for a treat on a week night. I did cook them about 15 minutes longer than listed.

This dish was way too sweet for my taste. I will definitely make it again, but next time using only 2 tbsp. of brown sugar instead of the recommended 5. I also substituted thinly sliced white onions for the pearl onions, which worked fine. It smells divine while baking!
