Creamy Shrimp Baked Onions

Wow, I feel like I have been going, going, going the past week or two. I have hardly had anytime to focus on my blog and get posts written; sorry if I haven’t been giving all of you the attention you deserve! I am working like a madman, but it is paying off! I have been training on grill and am LOVING it! Definitely need some practice but it is so exciting moving up in the kitchen finally.

This recipe was one of my home creations, another bit of creativity I had. I saw a post on Saucy Girl’s Kitchen for baked onions and I had to try them; I love onions. Of course, I didn’t feel right sitting down and just eating an entire baked onion, so I raided my pantry and this is what I came up with. This sauce is super easy and quick to make and this recipe is really healthy, not to mention DELICIOUS! Enjoy. =)

    Made this tonight for dinner to RAVE reviews! I loved the different textures and flavors and who doesn’t love a baked onion? I realized after I started cooking that I was out of cow’s milk and subbed in soy milk and the sauce was still amazing.

    Thanks so much! I will be making this again and often!
