I decided to do a take off on my dad's onion stuffed onion dish. I took some sweet onions and diced them:
then sauteed them in olive oil and a bit of kosher salt until they were soft and caramelly:
I then added cheese and let that melt and folded in the onions and then into a dish to take and serve out of:
To add a bit more flavor, spices such as paprika or turmeric can be added while sauteing the onions.
At the party I served them with crackers and there were gluten free alternatives there already. A couple people used it to complement some of the meat dishes.
I still had some left over and discovered a couple days later that it made a very nice spread for sandwiches made with hearty bread when reheated.
