“I know you must be thinking I have surely lost my marbles, but at least read this intro b4 you move on. Like many of us, I often “feast w/my eyes” & the pic of this recipe definitely invited a feast. This was found in *Birta* (Icelandic version of the TV Guide) & is prob the most creative & unique recipe to tempt me in quite some time. As a tasty side-dish, it would be compatible w/almost every main entrée + a great source of table conversation to boot. Be open-minded & give this a try. :-)”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C Peel onion, leaving the root-end intact. Cut the non-root end top from the onion & trim the root-end slightly to allow the onion shell to sit flat.
  2. Remove as much of the inside pulp as poss w/o tearing the shell & set the onion top + inside pulp aside. Bake shell in the oven for 10 minute Do not turn off the oven.
  3. Rough chop the onion top + inside pulp. In a non-stick skillet, combine the chopped onion w/sugar + cayenne pepper & simmer till soft. Add cream + egg yolk, stir to mix well & remove from heat.
  4. Mound onion mixture into the onion shells & bake for 7 minute Allow to cool slightly, sprinkle w/crumbled bacon (if using) & serve immediately w/entrée of choice.
  5. NOTE: For those of you who might be put off by the process for preparing the onion shells, this can easily be prepared & served in ramekins.
