This is another recipe from Gooseberry Patch's Simple Shortcut Recipes. Sweet Onion Casserole is in the "Fast-Fix Sides and Breads" chapter. I was attracted to this recipe because I love onions and I'm fortunate to live in an area close to Vidalia, Georgia so we have access to plenty of sweet onions. My husband loves stuffing so any recipe that calls for stuffing as one of its ingredients must be tried in our house. This casserole is delicious and is the perfect side dish for chicken or pork. I served it with baked chicken and roasted asparagus.
