Directions:
Preheat oven to 400.

Cut onion in half lengthwise and slice it very thinly. In a large skillet with a cover, melt 4 T of butter until foaming, reduce to low, add onions and cover letting them sweat until completely soft.

Thinly slice the greens as well and then add them to the pot, covering until wilted (10 minutes or so). Uncover and stir, cooking another 15 minutes until greens are soft.

Grease a baking dish with 1 t butter.

Sprinkle the salt, pepper, flour over the greens and stir. Increase the heat to high and add the milk, stirring until thickened (5 minutes).

Spread the mixture in the baking dish. Mix the cheese and breadcrumbs together and sprinkle over the top. Add the remaining butter in dabs.

Bake until crusty and bubbling, about 20 minutes.

You can really use any fresh available greens and it will be great! A mix of cheeses is also fine.
