A simple but impressive recipe from my mother, Charlotte White. The honey accentuates the natural carmelization of the onions, and the catsup (surprise secret ingredient!) lends color as well as flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first five ingredients in a shallow baking dish.
  2. Peel the onions and cut in half through the equator.
  3. Place cut-side down in baking dish.
  4. Cover tightly (use pan lid or foil). Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until very tender.
  5. Turn onions cut-side up and baste with sauce from bottom of pan before serving.

Made these tonight and these are impressive, indeed! I wasn't sure about the flavors when I first mixed them together but once they started cooking it was smelling great in my kitchen! My husband said he could make a meal on these alone. Very tasty. A different twist on onions and we do love onions just about any way you can fix them. This was a nice change--a fancy onion if I may say so. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
