  1. I liked these but hubby didn't. I used the dried herbs and added a pinch of paprika too. I removed the skin before roasting and cut the recipe down to 2 servings. Thanks for posting Engrossed! Made for ZWT, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.
  2. Thanks Engrossed for this easy and flavorfull recipe. I used regular onions, skin removed. Omitted parsley cause I didn't have. I used dried sage, oregano and basil. Made for 123 hit wonders.
  3. I, too, removed the outer skin from my onions - more out of habit, and simply because otherwise I would have to wash the dust off them, so I figured why not just be done with the outer layer? Loved this simple side served with a pork roast, which it complemented perfectly. The herbal notes, especially the sage and basil really come through, and the balsamic vinegar gives a lovely touch of sweet and tart. Great recipe.
  4. Great! We really enjoyed this simple dish with all of the fresh herbs. I just couldn't bring myself to do the onions with all of the papery skin on, lol, so I did remove the first papery layer. Thanks Engrossed for another great recipe.
