Baked Onions – Cipolle al forno



  • 4 large white onions
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Dry white wine


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and cut the onions in half. Place the onion halves in a well-oiled baking dish, cut side up. Season very generously with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with the parsley. Finally, drizzled the onion halves with olive oil.

Place the baking dish  oven for an hour or more, until the onions are soft and slightly caramelized. Baste the onions with their cooking juices every so often as they cook. Be careful not to allow the onions to burn.

10 minutes before they’re done, drizzle the white wine on top of the onions. Remove the onions from the oven and plate. Drizzle the sauce from the pan over the tops and serve.
