This is from an old newspaper clipping. It says it's adapted from Bradley Ogden's "Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner". Sounds flavorful.

I liked these but hubby didn't. I used the dried herbs and added a pinch of paprika too. I removed the skin before roasting and cut the recipe down to 2 servings. Thanks for posting Engrossed! Made for ZWT, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.

Thanks Engrossed for this easy and flavorfull recipe. I used regular onions, skin removed. Omitted parsley cause I didn't have. I used dried sage, oregano and basil. Made for 123 hit wonders.

I, too, removed the outer skin from my onions - more out of habit, and simply because otherwise I would have to wash the dust off them, so I figured why not just be done with the outer layer? Loved this simple side served with a pork roast, which it complemented perfectly. The herbal notes, especially the sage and basil really come through, and the balsamic vinegar gives a lovely touch of sweet and tart. Great recipe.
