How To Make Sweet Onion Casserole
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
F (175 degrees C). Butter a
2-quart baking dish.
Bring water to a boil in a large
saucepan, and sprinkle in rice.
Stir, reduce heat to low, and
simmer rice until it is half-
cooked about 5 minutes. Drain rice, and set aside.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir
onions until translucent but not browned, about 8 minutes. Mix
cooked onions and butter in the skillet with rice; stir in half-and-
half, salt, and 1 3/4 cup of Swiss cheese. Transfer mixture to the
prepared baking dish, and
sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Swiss cheese over top.
Bake uncovered in the preheated oven until rice is tender and top
is lightly browned, about 1 hour.
