INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 medium Vidalia onions, coarsely chopped

  • 1 clove of garlic, minced

  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 4 (16-ounce) cans plain baked beans, drained

  • 1/2 cup catsup

  • 1/4 cup light molasses

  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter or margarine


TO PREPARE:

Saute the onions and garlic in the oil in a saucepan for 5 minutes or until golden brown and tender.  Remove from heat. Stir in the beans, catsup and molasses.  Spoon into a 2-quart baking dish.

Combine the cheese, bread crumbs and butter in a bowl and mix well.  Sprinkle over the bean mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until brown and bubbly.

NOTE:
Sweet onions, such as Vidalia, are usually only available seasonally.  More robust onions can be sweetened by soaking in milk for several minutes after slicing or chopping.
