I made a large quantity of these onions. I parboiled and scooped out the centres of the onions instead of serving them as slices. This is a easy dish to prepare. These were delicious and very impressive. They went down very well indeed. I served them with grilled chicken. As a side dish the will go with any main courses. Next time I cook this recipe, I will be serving it with a piece of roast beef. A good addition to the menu for Canada national day. Thank you.

This is a different, very tasty, impressive side dish. I went with boiling them and then stuffing the onion cavity. These were a huge hit. It's different, and tastes great. This is basically a simple dish, but the presentation makes an impression. A keeper for sure.
