3 cups sliced Vidalia onions (use the real Vidalia onions, or this recipe will not taste right)
1 cup sour cream
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup sherry
2 tablespoons roasted red peppers
6 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon mild red hot sauce (we prefer SouthernAirs ORIGINAL hot sauce)
4 tablespoons butter. separated
1/2 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/3 cup bread crumbs
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt 2 ounces of butter in a pan, and saute the sliced onions until they are slightly brown, then arrange them in a shallow baking dish. Combine the sour cream, salt, pepper, eggs, sherry, red peppers, mushrooms and hot sauce, and pour the mixture over the onions. Dot the mixture with the remaining 2 ounces of butter. Sprinkle with grated cheese, then sprinkle with bread crumbs. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 25 minutes, the last 5 minutes uncovered.
