White House Scalloped Onions (1887)

"Take eight or ten onions of good size, slice them, and boil until tender. Lay them in a baking dish, put in bread crumbs, butter in small bits, pepper, and salt between each layer of onions until the dish is full.

"Put a layer of bread crumbs last. Add cream or milk until the baking dish is full. 

"Bake 20 minutes or half-hour."

(Origin - "The Original White House Cook Book" by Mrs. F.L. Gillette and Hugo Ziemann, 1887.)
