Ok so I'll admit the deep-fried version probably tastes better but this one's pretty good and a lot better for you.
1 medium onion
2 tbsps bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
Using an apple slicer cut the onion almost all the way through then remove the slicer. You'll have to push and prod a bit but it'll come off.
Gently pull apart the sections and brush in between with the beaten egg. Sprinkle the bread crumbs next. I used Italian seasoned crumbs, but you could also add your own seasonings like garlic, oregano, etc.
Sit the onion on a sheet of parchment paper and tent a piece of foil over the top.
Into the oven it goes at 400 F for 5 minutes then remove the foil and bake an additional 10-15 minutes. Broil a couple of minutes at the end to get nice brown tips.
Serve with sour cream, low fat if we're still trying to be healthy ; )
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
