Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 people


  • 2 large Spanish onions peeled and cut in half horizontally
  • 2 oz. bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped
  • Extra virgin olive oil as needed
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Brush each half of the onion with olive oil and bake in a 350°F onion until they start to soften.
  • Remove the onion and scoop out a hole in the center. Do not penetrate all the way through. Leave a base for the stuffing. Also, do not scoop too wide a hole or the onion will lose its structure.
  • Mix the breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper. Chop the onion you scooped out and mix it with the bread crumbs.
  • Moisten the mixture with enough olive oil to hold it together.
  • Fill the onion halves and return them to the oven until the stuffing is brown, about 30 minutes.


(Calorie counters: skip the cheese and use chicken broth instead of oil to moisten the breadcrumbs)
