I love onions! Red onions are some of my favorite because they have such a wonderful taste when roasted. I got this recipe from Jaime Oliver. I hope you will agree it's a wonderful recipe

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Remove the 1st layer of skin from the onions. With a knife take off the bottom core end of the onion to give it a flat base.
  3. Make two cuts in the top in a cross shape cutting 1/2 way through the onion (Do not cut through into quarters!).
  4. Mush the butter and thyme together, and then push into the gaps of the onions. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Cook the onions tightly packed in a earthen ware dish on a light bed of sea salt.
  6. Place in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes.

MMMMM! I halved the recipe and served as a side with Greek Pork Chops # 112915. The onions were sweet and the thyme gives them a nice flavor.

This was pretty good, but after I took it out at 35 minutes, I knew that I wanted it more carmalized. I turned the oven up to 450 and cooked another 20 minutes.
