“My mother gave me this recipe. She states she saw it on a cooking show. I decided to give it a try and fell in love with it. I love onions any way -- roasted, carmelized and even fresh. I am giving her credit and putting it here for others to enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the ends off the onion, just enough that it will rest flat on its root end.
  2. Peel off outer dry layers.
  3. Cut into wedges leaving the root end intact.
  4. Place on a square of heavy foil.
  5. Top with boullion and butter.
  6. Wrap securely, be sure that you do not poke holes in the foil-- you want the juices to stay in there with the onion.
  7. Bake at 350 for 45 min to 1 hour.
  8. Remove from foil into a serving bowl and top with cheese while HOT.
  9. Enjoy with a piece of crusty french bread.
