Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

baked red onion

this oven baked method produces a very tasty appetizer onion.  start with a very large red onion.  preheat the oven to 375 degrees and light spray a sheet pan with olive oil spray.

peel the skin from the onion and trim the bottom so that the onion will sit flat on the pan.  using a knife from the top down, cut 3/4 down into the onion forming a flower shape.  this may take 20 or more vertical slices.  transfer the onion to the baking sheet.

next, combine 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs, mixed with any seasoning of your choice.  examples would be garlic powder, paprika, any seasoned salt, or a favorite herb mixture.  in another small bowl, mix 2 large egg whites or use egg white product found in the dairy aisle of the market.  pour the egg whites over the onion after slightly opening up the onion to form the flower shape.  then, sprinkle with the bread crumbs mixture. 

spray the onion with olive oil and bake for at least 40 to 60 minutes until browned.  serve with a dipping sauce. this onion is very tasty and will be enjoyed by your guests at any game day party.
