Nothing smells better than onions roasting in the oven on a cold Thanksgiving day–unless it’s the TURKEY! But anyway, for a side dish, roasted onions fit the bill. And these are so easy to make. 5 minutes in prep time and 2 hours in roasting time.
Large yellow onions (one onion makes 2 servings)
Fresh ground pepper
Trim off each end of the onion and peel away the first layer of skin. Slice onions in half width-wise. Cut a large X through the center of each half. This allows the onions to cook quicker and keeps the oil and seasonings in place. Arrange on a baking sheet. I used a Pampered Chef stoneware pan. If you have one, use it because the flavor is so much better. Spread each onion with a generous amount of olive oil, at least a teaspoon per onion, and sprinkle with lots of sea salt and some pepper. Bake with your turkey in a 350 degree oven for 1-1/2 to 2 hours until tender. After you take it out of the oven, sprinkle with some parsley or dill to add a nice little “visual touch.”
