I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I LOVE CASSEROLES! I grew up on a steady diet of cheesy and/or creamy casseroles, so they will always hold a soft spot in my heart. Since I try to eat (somewhat) healthy now, I don’t eat casseroles as often as I used to, and when I do make them, I try to find lighter versions. One of my favorite sources for casserole recipes is Cooking Light.
This sweet onion casserole recipe is adapted from the May issue of Cooking Light. I made a few little changes–rather than using white rice, I substituted brown. Not only does this make the casserole more nutritious, but it’s a little bit heartier too. And instead of using gruyere cheese, I used smoked Swiss. The casserole smelled so good while it was cooking and it tasted even better when it was done.
