I love it when a photo can just about substitute for the ingredient list in a recipe! This dish has become an all-time family favorite side dish for any roasted or grilled meat. It is simple enough to perk up weekday family suppers, great for potlucks, and festive enough to grace holiday tables.
Since I have read everything in her Mitford series of books , it is no surprise that I have Jan Karon’s Mitford Cookbook and Kitchen Reader. Even if you don’t read through cookbooks for fun like I do, you will want to spend time savoring this collection of stories and recipes. I have adapted mine from “Cynthia’s Glazed Rosemary Onions”, found on page 40.
Glazed Rosemary Onions
8 medium yellow onions, peeled and quartered
2/3 cup honey
1/4 cup melted butter
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat baking dish with butter or cooking spray. Place onion quarters in dish carefully and pour honey and butter over them. Sprinkle with rosemary, salt and pepper. Bake for 1 hour, or until onions are soft.
