 Ingredients List

  • 4 md Onions
  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 1 1/2 c Dry white wine
  • Salt and pepper; to taste
  • 2 Sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2/3 c Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 c Parmesan cheese; grated
  • 1/4 lb Prosciutto; coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/2 ts Fresh thyme; chopped
  • 1 tb Fresh flat-leaf parsley;
  • -chopped


Heat the oven to 425. Slice off the top quarter of the onions. Peel them
and trim the bottoms just enough to make them sit flat. Heat the oil in a
heavy-based ovenproof skillet until hot. Put the onions, cut side down,
into the pan and cook just the cut side until well brownd, about 5 min.
Take the pan off the heat. Turn the onions cut side up and pour the wine
over them. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Add the thyme sprigs to the
pan and bake the onions until just tender when poked with a knife, about 1
hour. Remove the onions from the skillet (reserving the liquid in the pan)
and let them cool slightly. With a spoon, scoop ou the inside of each
onion, leaving a rim 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick (aobut 2 layers of onion). Chop
enough of the scooped-out onion to make about 1/3 cup. In a medium bowl,
mix the chopped onion with the breadcrumbs, parmesan, prosciutto, cream,
chopped thyme, and parsely. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the filling
among the hollowed onions, return the onions to the skillet with the
liquid, and put the skillet back in the oven. Bake until the onions are
very tender and the filling is hot, about 20 min. Serve with some of the
pan juices spooned over the onions.
