Stuffed Onions Recipe

Step 1

Hollow out onions (a melon-baller works well -- leave at least 2-3 "layers of rings" so onions can support filling) then blanch the "shells" until they are softened, about 9-10 minutes.

Step 2

Saute the onion pieces removed (from about 2 onions) in a little butter. Mix this with enough breadcrumbs to "glue or bond" the mixture together and then add enough cream to "wet" or keep the mixture moist.

Step 3

Add cooked rice, and salt & pepper to taste.

Step 4

Stuff onion-rice mixture back into onion shells, Garnish with more grated swiss and thyme. Bake under moderate heat just to reheat and melt cheese topping.
