Directions

  1. Cut thick slice from the top and scoop center from each onion.
  2. Set aside.

  4. Drain shells well, and brush each with oil.
  5. Sprinkle generously with paprika.
  6. Chop reserved onion.
  7. Cook in 1/4 cup butter until tender.
  8. Stir in parsley, half and half, olives, walnuts, cheese and salt, mixing well.
  9. Spoon mixture into prepared onion shells and place in a shallow baking dish.
  10. Combine bread crumbs and 1 TBS butter, melted.
  11. Sprinkle on top of onions.
  12. Bake at 350*F for 15 minutes.
