Recipe by sugarpea
READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • Preheat oven to 400°; peel onions and slice 1/2" from the top of each; discard; slice just enough from the bottoms to allow the onions to stand upright.
  • Use a melon baller to hollow out the inside of each onion, leaving a 1/3" to 1/2" wall; set aside; chop the removed parts and set 1/2 cup aside; save the rest for another use.
  • Gently add onions to a pot of boiling, salted water and boil for 5 minutes; remove with a slotted spoon and set aside to dry on a wire rack.
  • Saute reserved chopped onions in 1/2 T oil until translucent, about 8 minutes; add mushrooms, ham and pepper and saute until browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Deglaze pan with wine and pour mixture into a small bowl; let cool for 2 or 3 minutes; add the parsley and cheese and stir to combine.
  • Stuff the onions; place in a small roasting pan and drizzle with remaining 1/2 T oil; cover with foil and bake until tender, about 50 minutes; remove foil 10 minutes before done and allow to brown.
