Thanksgiving is a time of year when friends and family gather to give thanks and share a delicious meal.  It’s a time to reflect on gratitude, share blessings with loved ones, and appreciate the abundance of the harvest season. While the star of the Thanksgiving table is usually the turkey, the side dishes play an equally vital role in creating a memorable meal.

And what better way to bring comfort and warmth to your Thanksgiving table than with a mouthwatering, cheesy onion casserole? Side dishes come in all shapes and sizes, from creamy mashed potatoes to tangy cranberry sauce. This year, try our recipe below:


2 tbs. butter or margarine
3 large sweet onions or 4 medium white or yellow onions
2 cups shredded cheese (8 oz.)
1 can cream of chicken soup
2/3 cups milk
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 baguette, sliced


Slice the onions. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat and add the onions. Cook until clear. In a shallow casserole pam, layer the onions, 2/3 cheese and salt and pepper to taste.

In a saucepan, hear the soup, milk, and soy sauce. Add this mixture over the onions and stir gently to mix. Top up with the bread slices and cook at 350 for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, push the bread slices under the sauce and top up with the remaining cheese. Cook for another 15 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Thanksgiving is a time for indulgence and gratitude, and what better way to express your appreciation than by sharing a delectable cheesy onion casserole with your loved ones? This rich and comforting dish will surely become a new tradition on your Thanksgiving table. So simple and quick to make!

M&P Engineering is a leading manufacturer and supplier of food processing equipment and our most popular machine is the Large Onion Peeling machine.

M&P’s Large Onion Peeling machine uses self-adjusting floating knives to top, tail, and peel onions of 45mm to 115mm diameter. The machine is easy to operate due to its simplistic mechanism and design and, thanks to the dry peeling process the product remains in pristine condition once it has been peeled.

Onions come in a wide range of shapes and colours, and common onions grow in 3 different colours: red, white, and yellow, each having their own characteristics. Different onions can come in different sizes too, but for M&P’s Onion Peeling Machine that isn’t a problem. Red onions and shallots are particularly hard to handle, due to their irregular shape and size, but with our equipment, the process couldn’t be easier.

M&P Engineering also offers a wide range of food processing machinery in addition to onion peeling machines, including our freshcut machinery: the Carousel Grid Cutting machine and the Radish Top & Tailer.
