    twissis's Note:

    I know you must be thinking I have surely lost my marbles, but at least read this intro b4 you move on. Like many of us, I often “feast w/my eyes” & the pic of this recipe definitely invited a feast. This was found in *Birta* (Icelandic version of the TV Guide) & is prob the most creative & unique recipe to tempt me in quite some time. As a tasty side-dish, it would be compatible w/almost every main entrée + a great source of table conversation to boot. Be open-minded & give this a try. :-)

      What a unique and tasty onion! I just loved the filling - it was creamy, sweet and spicy. And the presentation was beautiful. I?d like to try this again in ramekins, but have a feeling we?ll be making it in the onion over and over again. It is a bit of work to hollow out the onion shells, but well worth it. One of my onions shrank while it cooked in the oven, and the bottom layers contracted, allowing the ?custard? to flow out. So be careful to leave a good, thick bottom, but thinner on the sides to allow the onion to cook through. Thanks, Mary Pat, for posting such a unique and wonderful recipe! Gourmet Goddesses ZWT9.

      These were an excellent addition to my Tapas and Sangria party menu! I loved the idea as much as the onions! Great fun to stuff and the first bite has your full attention! Loved it!
