DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 500°F.
  • Spread a large sheet of foil on top of a baking sheet leaving enough to pull around the onions (and seal) once they're baked.
  • Roughly chop and place the onions in a large bowl. Toss with just enough of the oil to lightly coat. Salt and pepper to taste. You can also use a little cayenne or red pepper flakes if you like the spice.
  • Put prepared onions on the foil covered tray and spread out as much as possible.
  • Bake 30 - 40 minutes Do not let onions burn.
  • Remove from oven and carefully seal the onions in the foil they were baked on.
  • Set foil packet aside for 5-10 minutes so onions can finish steaming.
  • If preparing to use as a sauce or condiment, substitute melted butter for the olive oil. I don't use butter if I'm making these to use in my freezer meals.
