I called these roasted onions special because they are indeed a special recipe. Those ones destinated to be repeated many times.
I like onions very much. I have already posted many recipes with onions as the main ingredient, such as the irresistible onion French tart, the onion gratin, caramelized onions and onion tart with gorgonzola.
These roasted onions are extremely easy to prepare. You just need little butter, salt and pepper…and onions. The oven does most of the work.
We are in Autumn, my favorite season. I love silence, clouds, the fresh air that comes after (a hot) summer. In this “back to the den” time, I love searching for new recipes, not fearing the excessive warm in the kitchen.
I found this recipe this way, while pleasantly looking for inspiration (I only try recipes that inspire me). I found it on Food52, where I had already found so many good recipes.
This roasted onions come out delicious, caramelized… perfect. We ate them with roasted beef, but I believe they go with anything.
