ROASTED BALSAMIC ONIONS in GANANOQUE

By

Today is another gorgeous day in the Town of Gananoque.  Sunny, blue sky and 24 degrees.  (75 degrees old school)  Still nice enough to BBQ without mitts on :0)

We've got some nice steaks that I want to cook simply with a brush of olive oil, s & p and a rub of fresh garlic.  As with everything, we'll have a green salad along with it but I think we need another side dish, hmmmmm . . .

mushrooms?    Nah, did that last week.

Potatoes?  Nah, don't need something that filling.

I know . . .

Onions!! Roasted onions with Balsamic Vinegar . . .

These are Grrrrrr.eat !! 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and then butter a baking dish just large enough to hold 2 medium onions, halved.

Cut the unpeeled onions in half, lengthwise through the root and stem ends.

Cut a thin slice off the rounded side of each half so that it will sit upright in the dish.

Arrange the onions cut side up in the dish and season with S & P and place 1 teaspoon of butter on each half.

Cover and bake 45 - 50 minutes

Uncover and sprinkle each onion half with 2 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar.  (I like to spread the onion open a bit so the balsamic can get down between the folds)

Bake uncovered for another 15 minutes and remove from oven

You can serve them hot or at room temperature.

(Not exactly cut the same as mine but mine haven't been cooked yet!)

And, whether you want to find a home with a garden to grow onions or that perfect kitchen to cook these onions, let me be the Gananoque Realtor that helps make that a reality for you.  Give me, Susan Emo,  a call and let me know if you're a cook or an eater, and I'll help match you to that perfect place!

Now that sounds like a very tasty side dish Susan.  I love just about anything with balsamic vinegar on it.

Susan:  This sounds... and LOOKS so yummy.  And I bet it would also clear our a person's sinuses... if they were in need.  I have not had onions like you have prepared them... but I'd love to give them a try.  I've had baked onions with more of a zesty Cajun mustard sauce... not monstrously HOT... just tasty and tangy.  Similar to the way Outback Steakhouse serves their Bloomin' Onion.  Yummm.

Hi Karen Anne -  these onions are very sweet and savoury at the same time.  Not hot at all.  The Balsamic is sweet and the natural sugars get baked out of the onions so that this is almost like an onion marmalade.  Try it and let me know what you think of it - trust me :0)

This sounds great! I would not worry about clearing out sinuses. I would worry about clearing out the room an hour or so later.

Susan:  As far as having to clear out the room in an hour... it sounds to me like Rob "doesn't know beans" about onions.  Whaddya think?

Rich - I've made it with both as well as small pearl onions and they all work. Simply for a contrast of colour, the lighter onions work best.

Amy... just a few weeks of grillin' time left?  I remember my Mom Marian... grillin' her delicious chicken quarters on the back patio in her ski jacket up in Mentor, Ohio growing up.

I sure do miss my Mom...

Karen Anne - It gets down into the 50s and we Hahns bundle up ;-)   Too many years living in South Florida I guess!
