Onions from South Texas that I was told were the sweetest in all the land and since I have not had onions from all the land I would have to agree that these are some darn sweet onions. You might recall that I fried up a big bunch of onion rings but these were not to be consumed as onion rings these were going to become a 'parmesan,' so to speak.
I layered some onions, then a nice mix of cheeses including queso de oaxaca, parmesan, asiago, fontina and provolone, a layer of sliced fresh wild mushrooms, a layer of cheese and marinara sauce, another layer of fried onions, more cheese and marinara, a layer of fresh tomato, more cheese and a final layer of sauce and then large slices of provolone to top it off. Pop it in a 350 oven for 20 minutes until golden and bubbly - let cool slightly and slice.
For you ugly food lovers out there, you know who you are, this was all flavor without any of that distracting beauty - nice personality - pretty on the inside kind of thing, no need to get bogged down with appearances.
It would be so nice with a mesclun salad, but not a pretty salad a real ugly salad to keep with the theme.
