DIRECTIONS

  • Remove as much of the inside pulp as poss w/o tearing the shell & set the onion top + inside pulp aside. Bake shell in the oven for 10 minute Do not turn off the oven.
  • Rough chop the onion top + inside pulp. In a non-stick skillet, combine the chopped onion w/sugar + cayenne pepper & simmer till soft. Add cream + egg yolk, stir to mix well & remove from heat.
  • Mound onion mixture into the onion shells & bake for 7 minute Allow to cool slightly, sprinkle w/crumbled bacon (if using) & serve immediately w/entrée of choice.
