“This recipe came from Woman's World Magazine. My copy of the recipe is all tattered and torn so I thought I'd better submit it to keep my copy of the recipe from getting more torn up! The original recipe called for those frozen small whole onions. I don't like those, so I slice my own yellow onions instead.”
