A man I knew claimed that raw Bermuda onion, properly prepared
made the very best bedtime sandwich and is, according to him, burp-
proof. I never dared try. But for the adventurous, here it is:
1 medium-sized Bermuda onion, peeled and sliced
fresh caraway rye bread
lettuce, if desired
salt and pepper
1 - Scald sliced onion with boiling water.
2 - Drain slices and dry them on paper towel.
3 - Make sandwiches.
4 - Serve with beer.
5 - Sweet dreams.
