Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

A side to go along with roasted pork, chicken, or duck.

I made this today and found it good, not great, but good. The carmalized onions were excellent. I ate it alone. I can imagine as a side to pork, chicken or duck as chef suggested would be better.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°; spread onions in a large shallow baking dish (13x9); drizzle with the olive oil; sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt and a generous grinding of black pepper.
  2. Roast, turning each wedge once, until the onions begin to caramelize on the edges, about 30 minutes.
  3. Take baking dish out of oven; arrange figs, cut sides down, between the wedges of onion.
  4. Place dish back in oven; roast 10 minutes until figs are golden on the cut sides.
  5. Sprinkle with vinegar and rosemary; serve immediately.
