And the sour cream is what hold it all together, as well as giving it great flavor! DairyPure’s All Natural Sour Cream® is made with fresh milk and cream from their own dairy, with no artificial growth hormones.

You caramelize onions…which is basically just cooking them low and slow until they become very soft and turn a gorgeous amber color! Mix in the Worcestershire, sour cream, and grated cheddar…

  1. This looks amazing (like all your recipes) and I am making my grocery list now! One question, what are you scooping it up with?

  2. Wow! What a yummy and delicious recipes, my mouth is already watering and i can’t wait to try this at home asap.

  3. HI, Shelly. I love your site. !! This recipe looks so incredible. I’m actually thinking of making it for my family when I visit them on Christmas morning. But I’d like to try to make it more of a strata and add egg to the base with the onions and sour cream. Do you think that would work? Any advice as to how many eggs you would add? I’m not that great a cook ?, so I wanted to run it past you.
    Thank you, and Happy Holidays!
