This is a simple tasty recipe. I modified mine by peeling the onions, it was delicious, but not flavorful enough. Next I cut the onions in half, then thirds, so they were in large pieces. I then poured on some oil and salt and tossed. Baked them on the baking sheet middle rack twenty or so minutes-absolutly delicious. Serve plain as a rich treat-very flavorful. (You can add other spices also) or use as topping for cous cous, quinoa,rice, etc. Read More

Absolute favorite onion recipe. Skipped vinegar completely. TIP: after placing cut side down cut off small portion of end facing up allows oil to catch on the onion. Read More

We love onions prepared this way. Also we sometimes grill them and also we have wrapped them in foil to roast. Many times we go ahead and slice the onions add the oil and seasonings and wrap in foil. When our steaks are done wallah! each person has their own packet of delicious onions to top their steak! Read More

YOU HAVE TO PEEL THESE! The skin is borderline inedible. Basically, you chop the onion in half, chop off the tip, drizzle with EVOO and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cut a slit in the top and wedge in a 1/4-1/2 clove (piece) of garlic. Roast like 25-30 mins, and they're GREAT! Kind of bland, in the sense you'd want to serve them with steak or mushrooms or something in addition to it. Read More

I love roasted onions. I just peel quarter and throw them and lots of peeled garlic (yum!) in a roasting pan coated with olive oil spray for 20 minutes spread out a bit add some frozen spinach brussels sprouts and cook for another 15 minutes. um um um... goooood! I weigh it out in 6 oz portions and I can eat this with my meals for 4 or 5 days. Read More

A nice addition to Christmas dinner. If you're choosing to drizzle with balsamic vinegar use it sparingly! Read More
