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


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Peel the onions. Cut off the top and bottom. Cut the onions into vertical eighths. Separate into strips.
  • 2Heat 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.
  • 3Notes: 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!
