Thyme after Thyme Thyme is popping up into my cooking. It seems I had forgotten what a wonderful flavor it adds and this recipe is no exception. We love onions and this recipe adds a new flavor dimension. The thyme seems to enhace and soften but not take away the onion flavor,I used large pickling onions and because of their size only roasted them for 25 minutes - Nice looking side dish as well as tasty Thanks Evie* for another winner
