Baked Creamed Onions

Baked Creamed Onions

Good food doesn't have to be complicated, and this side dish is a good example. In less than an hour we'll have a super tasty side dish for BBQ time, for salmon and even for roasted chicken (for vegetarians I guess you can use them as a side dish for...tofu?)
They are delicious!

Also this dish makes you feel healthy and zen... all we need in life...


Baked Creamed Onions

Cooking Time : 60 minutes    Serves 8 portions

Ingredients

 4 Medium Yellow Onions
100 ml. Heavy Cream
2 Laurel leaves
25 gr. Grated Parmesan Cheese



Instructions

1. Heat the oven to 375˚F 

2. Peel off the dry skin from onions and trim away root and 1/4" of top of onions leaving the onions whole.

3. Put the onions in water in a medium pot and let them boil for bout half an hour -we want them firm but crunchy-soft...tender- . We don't want them to disintegrate (it's not onion soup). Drain the onions and reserve the water where we boiled the onions. It would be a good idea to reserve the onions too!

4.  In a medium bowl mix the cream with two tablespoons of the onion water and season to taste (I only put a bit of kosher salt and a tablespoon of soy sauce) 

5. When the onions are cool enough, slice them in half -root side- and place them in a square oven proof dish with the cut side facing down.

6. Add the laurel leaves, the seasoned cream and the parmesan cheese and bake them for about half an hour or when the onions look a bit brown on top and the cream is bobbling.

7. Serve and enjoy!
