    seen this or something simalar on the food channel. ran across thesee big sweet onions and they were just the ticket....
    hollowed them out, saving a cap for then, use a vegetable medly which you like, add cheddar, s&p, fill onion, pat a butter, cap on.
    this is a oven dish but will see what happens here.



    will show finial pics when done.

    no weather last nite to speak of, although i heard they got snow by twin cities...

    the onions turned out swell, the cheesy veggies with the butteriness held in. that onion makes a good vessel for doing these. i/2 an onion as you can see is plenty for a serving. i included both in the shot just for the heck of it. i did put evoo on the outside per rich's thoughtful advice. ended up peeling the outer layer off though. I think this came from sandra lee on the food channel just fyi. not a fan but seen these and smoker clicked rite away.


    thks for cking my pics!!!

    Points from me as well. Great idea!!!!!!!!
     
  8. Very cool Erain! Can you tell us how you hollowed out the onion? I can't picture how to do that with the way an onion is "designed"... Did you cut out the middle or just pull it out somehow?

    Erain, those look fantastic! Excellent post, and thank you for sharing your pics. Made stuffed onions last year for the Super Bowl, 'cept they were in a heavy cream sauce, very tasty, but yours look MUCH better! [​IMG]

    Definitely earned points from me, buddy! Well done! [​IMG]

    i took a knife and cut the top off and set aside for a cap, on the flat surface where you just removed the top, i made an x shaped incisions, being careful not to cut thru the side walls and also not cut thru the base. finished off scooping the inards out with a spoon. a mellon baller tool would prolly do the trick better. next time i going to give that a shot. save the stuff and use up during the week. these are awesome and highly recomend... remember this was just a starter, someone else take this up to a new level and share back with us!!! actually cant believe this thread still has life to it!!!
