DIRECTIONS

  • Peel onions and cut in half horizontally. Place in a 1-quart casserole dish.
  • Top each onion half with salt and pepper to taste. Add a pat of butter, using 1/2 teaspoon to 1/2 tablespoon per onion.
  • Cover and cook at 100% power (HIGH) for 8 to 10 minutes, or until onions are soft.
  • Uncover and top each half with shredded cheese to taste.
  • Pop back in microwave and zap just long enough to melt the cheese.
  • If you prefer, bake the onions one hour in a conventional 350-degree oven, topping with cheese when baking has finished.
  • An alternate topping: Prepare onions as above, but top each half with 1/2 tablespoon EACH butter and brown sugar.
