Stuffed Onions

Introduction

Pair onions and sweet potatoes with tangy blue cheese and crunchy walnuts for a stand-out side dish.
Pair onions and sweet potatoes with tangy blue cheese and crunchy walnuts for a stand-out side dish.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 large yellow onions, (about 1 pound)
    1 sweet potato, diced (about 7 ounces)
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
    2 tablespoon chopped walnuts
    1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon blue cheese





Tips

Bake on parchment paper or a silicone liner to keep the onions juicy and to ease cleanup.
Save the insides of the onions for use on another night. Better yet--roast them with the stuffed onions. (Just place on the baking sheet and coat with nonstick spray.) Cool then freeze or refrigerate for a savory sandwich topping.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner. Remove the root and tip of the onions, peel away the outer skin and cut each onion in half horizontally. Using a paring knife, melon baller or spoon hollow out the center of the onion, but reserve the removed sections for use on another night.
Place the onions on the sheet pan and coat with nonstick spray. Fill each onion with 1/4 of the sweet potatoes and thyme. Coat with nonstick spray.
Bake for 20 minutes, then open the oven and carefully pour 1 teaspoon of vinegar over each stuffed onion and bake another 5 minutes.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven, top each onion with chopped walnuts and blue cheese, and bake 5 more minutes.



Serving Size: Makes 4 stuffed onions. 1/2 onion per serving

    I made this tonight. I would cook the sweet potatoes for a few minutes in boiling water. Even cooking them at 35 minutes they weren't quite done. Also, they were a little dry but still good! My husband would have liked more cheese. Overall it was tasty and nice with our gardein chicken. Thx Chef Meg - 11/12/12

    The presentation of this was impressive.I moistened the sweet potatoes and put them in the micro for a few minutes before filling onions. I used .5 oz of cheese and .5 oz black walnuts in each onion. - 11/12/12

    Sounded great, as all the ingredients are favorites, but the flavors didn't come together, even with steaming the sweet potato first & baking the onions longer. Liked the sweet potato in little chunks and will try all the ingredients in a casserole. Maybe adding green chiles, chanterelles & egg. - 11/13/12

    do you need to cook the sweet potatoes or will they soften enough in 30 mins? - 11/12/12

    Something that takes Chef Meg 10 minutes to prepare takes me 20 minutes at least. Next time I might cook them longer. I cooked them in an enameled dish with parchment. Next time I will cover them to keep them from drying. Very good! - 11/23/12

    Elegant, sounds super yummy & may be served in an upscale restaurant or good for entertaining. I don't care for Blue Chesse so I plan on trying it with Feta/Gargonzola. I may even sub TraderJoe's Candied (slightly sweet) Pecans or mix with the Walnuts! Yum!! --HOWSLADY,Yes reg potatoes2, wo walnuts? - 11/12/12

    Not sure if I could like it as I do not care for blue cheese but that's as far as I care to take it. I am sure at least as much effort was out into this recipe and for that I am appreciative. - 11/12/12

    ok, now that I've made it - it looked good but was awful. No one liked it. I agree, the flavors did not blend and the prep time was much longer than 10 minutes. NOT incredible. - 12/13/12

    Sounds interesting! Might try if I have others to share it with. Had an odd combo yesterday - brussel sprouts and artichokes in a sauce, topped with slivered almonds. Yummy!!! - 11/12/12

    Sorry, doesn't sound very appealing. I like the stuffed onion part. Could we use regular potatoes with another cheese? Not too good on substituting items. Please help. - 11/12/12
