Summer is here with all that miserable heat! But, so are the fresh veggies. If you have never had a baked onion, now is your chance. They are so easy to make and add a special side dish to your dinner.
Get one of those smaller, round white onions. Slice the top and the bottom off and peel it, and with a small spoon or a melon baller, carve out a cavity in the top of the onion. Put one of those beef boullion cubes down in the cavity and a pat of butter on top. Then, close up the foil tightly around it and put the whole thing in the oven. Cook in the foil at about 350-400 for about an hour. (Same way you'd do a baked potato). The juices from the onion will be contained by the foil and the bouillon flavor will permeate the whole onion. (You can put the foil pouch in a dish to be safe, if you want to. No one wants to clean an oven). It will taste a little like French Onion soup in flavor. Really nice side and very convenient.
Till next time........
