  4. Scoop out the center of each onion half, leaving a 1/2" shell.
  5. Reserve the centers.
  6. If necessary, cut a small piece from the end of each onion shell so the shells will stand upright.

Just tried this for the first time tonight. Absolutely delicious! Printed recipe and will make often, I'm sure. (Left out breadcrumbs 'cause I didn't have any, which seemed to work fine.)
