Hello friends, I hope you had a good week and a relaxing weekend (I think weekends go so quick that you don’t even know how is it possible that it is Monday again). Anyway, when I went to do some food shopping today at the supermarket I bought some really nice white sweet onions and I wanted to cook a recipe when the onion is in “the center of attention” because in most of the recipes the onion is an ingredient which is used as a supplement to the flavour but not as the main one. I added to the roasted stuffed onions some mushrooms, garlic, Brie cheese, Thyme, Chives and bread crumbs. I loved how the sweet flavour of the onions blend wonderfully well with the nutty taste of the mushrooms and the creamy texture of the cheese. I definitely think this stuffed baked onions recipe is a very good way to appraise the humble onion and have a t the same time a beautiful dish on your table.
Cooking time: 60 min
Serves: 2 People
For this very interesting recipe you will need:
2 medium size white onions
250 gr of chestnut mushrooms
40 gr of soft Brie cheese
1 clove of garlic
Dried (or fresh Thyme)
35 gr of bread crumbs
Preheat the oven on gas mark 5/375 F/190 C
Then, cut both top and bottom edges of the onion (making sure not to cut too much off the bottom as it will be the base). Salt the inside of the onions, drizzle with some olive oil and place them in an upright position on the tray to roast for about 45 minutes or until 90% soft and slightly brown. Mean while on a pan cook the chopped mushrooms with salt and 1 teaspoon of olive oil until soft for about 15 minutes on low-medium heat.
When the onions and the mushrooms are cooked take the inside layers out of the onions, (leaving just the outside layers), the clove of garlic and blend everything together, then salt, add the bread crumbs the chopped brie cheese, Thyme, Chives and mix very well with a spoon. After that, place the mixture inside each onion and cook in the onion for about 15 minutes in gas mark 5/375 F/190 C or when you see the cheese oozing out. That’s it.
Hope you will find this simple recipe interesting as I feel there are not enough onion recipes to try. I tried to enhance the onion flavour at its best and really loved the final results. Please do give it a go I am sure you will love the results, I will be happy to hear your feedbacks.
Happy cooking and try to cherish every moment friends!
