Description

Warm, caramelized onions can either be a side dish or dip with crusty bread!

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Onions, Peeled And Quartered
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons White Wine (optional)
  • ⅛ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoons Paprika
  • ½ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 2 ounces, weight Gorgonzola Cheese

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Place the onions in a baking dish (the one I used is 9″ x 5″) and toss with the olive oil. Bake, stirring occasionally, for about 1 hour or until the onions are tender and slightly browned.

Heat the butter in a large pan and whisk in the flour. Whisk in the milk, wine (if using), nutmeg and paprika and cook for a few minutes on medium heat until the mixture thickens. Add the Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste.

When the onions are ready, add the sauce to the baking dish, raise the temperature to 425F and return to the oven for another 15-20 minutes or until the mixture is a light golden brown. Sprinkle with the Gorgonzola and serve warm.

YUM. I’ve been eyeballing this recipe since it was first posted, and finally got around to making it. I made just as directed and served it as a spread on crusty ciabatta bread. The long roasting time really mellowed out the onions, and it was the perfect side for veggie soup on a cold night. Thanks so much for sharing!
