Baked Onions~
Baking onions in their skins is a very traditonal way of cooking and serving them as a stand alone vegetable. Here I have cooked them whole and halved to save on cooking time.
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 1 colossal onion*, sliced in half, or whole
  • 1 tablespoon butter* or coconut oil*
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Halves
  3. Cut onion in half leaving peels in place and lay flat side down in baking dish. Add water to cover bottom of dish.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for approximately 11/2 hours; remove from oven.
  5. With a sharp knife trim the top and bottom of the onion and remove peel.
  6. Place flat side up on plate and drissle with butter or coconut oil; salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Whole
  8. Leaving the peels in place, score the onion in quarters. This will allow for easy removal of peels later.
  9. Bake in preheated oven for approximately 21/2 hours; remove from oven.
  10. With a sharp knife trim the top and bottom of the onion and remove peel.
  11. Place on plate and drissle with butter or coconut oil; salt and pepper to taste.
  12. To cook smaller onions simply change cooking time. Halves cook much more quickly than whole onions.
