Baked Sweet Onions Recipe

Baking enhances the natural sweetness of my family's favorite Vidalia onions. Perfect alongside beef entrees, this side dish has a similar taste to French onion soup.—Ann Yarber, Goldsby, Oklahoma
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 large sweet onions, peeled
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Burgundy wine or beef broth
  • 8 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

Directions

  • 1. Cut each onion into six wedges to within 1/2 in. of the bottom. Place each onion on a piece of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square).
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the butter, wine, bouillon, thyme and pepper. Spoon over onions; sprinkle with cheese. Fold foil around each onion and seal tightly. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 40-45 minutes or until onions are tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 8 servings.
