Directions

  1. Boil the onions in plenty of water for 15 minutes, until slightly tender. Remove from the pan and allow to cool. Remove the top 1 inch of each onion and reserve. If need be, slightly trim the stalk end of the onion so that they sit flat on a roasting tray.
  2. Cut about a heaped tbsp out from the inside of each onion, keeping the outside intact. Finely chop along with the reserved onion top.
  3. Pre heat the oven to 400°F.
  4. Heat a frying pan and add a little olive oil, garlic, chopped onions and a little chopped rosemary. Fry for a couple of minutes then turn the heat down and add the cream. Remove from heat and stir in the parmesan and season to taste.
  5. Wrap a rasher of bacon around each onion and secure with the sharpened rosemary twig or half a cocktail stick.
  6. Place the onions on the roasting tray and spoon some of the filling inside each one. Bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Place the onions on a warmed serving plate, warm through any remaining filling and serve on the side.
Most Helpful

These onions were wonderful! I'd give them 5 stars except that the cheese is way overstated. I used about 3/4 cup, which was more than plenty. 2 cups would have produced an inedible, sticky mess. Other than that, these were perfect- golden brown on top, tender enough to cut through without being sharp, and just plain yummy! The bacon did not brown, which for me isn't a problem, but might be for some. If you must have the bacon brown, par-cook it to halfway done before wrapping the onions. That should solve the problem. I'd love to have these again- possibly a holiday dish. Thanks for posting!
