These stuffed onions are a good starter, though they also make a great accompaniment to roast meats, in which case you may want to stuff them with some trimmings from your joint instead. You could also try stuffing them with veal or chicken or make them vegetarian by adding some grated mature Cheddar in place of the meat.


  • 4 medium-sized red onions, peeled
  • A good knob of butter
  • 80 g


Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6.

Wrap the onions in foil, stand them on a baking tray and cook for about 45-50 minutes
