Eat well!


  • 8 medium yellow onions
  • 1 1/2 cups mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Take your onions and cut off the top quarter from each. Wrap your onions in aluminum foil and cook until they are soft, about 90 minutes.
  3. While the onions are cooking, prepare your other ingredients: slice your mushrooms and celery into thin sections, and chop your fresh parsley.
  4. Remove the onions from the oven and aluminum foil and allow them to cool for about 10 minutes. Remove the skin, and using a melon-baller or spoon, remove all but the outer two layers of each onion to leave a shell. Place the shells on a baking tray and set aside the scooped onion.
  5. On a large skillet warmed to medium heat, melt the two tablespoons of butter. Add the scooped onion, celery and mushrooms. Sautee for five minutes, then mix in the fresh parsley, bread crumbs, teaspoon of salt and enough broth to make the onion stuffing wet. Continue to cook for another minute, and then remove from heat.
  6. Fill each hollowed-out onion with the stuffing and add 1⁄4 cup of the remaining broth to the pan. Bake the onions for an additional 30 minutes at 250 degrees Fahrenheit, or until the stuffing is golden brown.
  7. Remove the stuffed onions from the oven and season with salt and pepper by taste and serve hot. Enjoy!
