Baked Onions with Dill

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour


6 servings

My husband likes any kind of onion dish, and this is one of our favorites. It's perfect for serving with a roast beef—the taste of the sweet onions accents the meat wonderfully. I especially enjoy baking, but when you raise beef cattle like we do, you get good at cooking meat dishes!


  • 6 medium onions
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup tomato juice
  • 2 tablespoons bacon drippings
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill seeds
  • Chopped fresh parsley


  1. Peel onions; cut widthwise into halves. Place cut sides up in greased 10- x 6- x 2-in. baking pan. Fry bacon until crisp; drain and crumble over onions. Combine the tomato juice, bacon drippings, brown sugar, salt, pepper, paprika and dill seeds; pour over onions. Cover with foil; bake at 325° for 1 hour or until tender, basting occasionally. Sprinkle with parsley at serving time. (Serving suggestion: This dish is great with roast beef!)
