Upgrade potatoes and onions with easy Bourbon Caramelized Onions

I don't drink bourbon, but I like it in small doses.
Gonna have to forgive me: I forgot to take a finished product photo! Will you take my word for it that the potatoes and onions taste oh, so good?
   Seems there aren't enough hours in the day anymore. Wish I had half the energy of Becky over at Simply Self Sufficiency. Naw, not me, but with all the to dos that come along with spring, it's harder to find time to laze around and read. Please forgive me for taking a picture of the recipe instead of copying it out, but I was having a hard time tearing myself away from reading The Dirty Life: On Farming, Food, and Love by Kristin Kimball.
   Love this little ditty from Kimball's book:
"Question: Why is farming like a relationship?
"Answer: Because you do not reap what you sow. That's a lie. You reap what you sow, hill, cultivate, fertilize, harvest, and store."
The caramelized onions added a nice little twist to the usual potatoes and onions.
I was going to bake these in the SunOven, but the sun disappeared so I had to use the stove.
The blue container is the kitchen compost bin.
I keep one near at hand every time I cook to catch the compost-ables.
Didn't cook down the onions completely before layering with potato slices, topping with butter and baking an hour at 350°F. Click on pic to enlarge recipe.
   Let me know if you can't get the pic to enlarge and need me to print out the recipe. Just finished and very much enjoyed reading the book. Now what should I read? Any suggestions??
