Savory Baked Onions

Diane C.


This is a variation of an old cookbook recipe. It has wonderful flavor and goes with many roasted meats. I love it with roast pork or turkey.

How to Make Savory Baked Onions


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Peel the onions. Cut off the top and bottom. Cut the onions into vertical eighths. Separate into strips.
  2. Heat butter, nuts, sugar, salt, and pepper in baking dish. Add the sliced onion, tossing to coat with the butter/nut mixture. Cover tightly and bake for 1 hour.
  3. Notes: the original recipe calls for 24 small pearl onions. I use mild white onions or regular yellow onions.
    You can cut the onion into slices or chunks, if you prefer. I like the thicker strips.
    I use a 1.5 or 2 qt. covered baking dish. Enjoy!
