Creamy Asiago Bacon Wrapped Roasted Onions

Creamy Asiago Bacon Wrapped Roasted Onions
Are you ready for another side dish recipe? How about these tasty creamy asiago bacon wrapped roasted onions?!? Onions are one of those ingredients that I can overlook; it's a staple in many recipes but I can sometimes forget that the onion can be the star of the show! In this recipe the onions are simply cut in half, wrapped in bacon and roasted in a creamy asiago sauce until they are nice and melt in your mouth tender and oh so creamy and good! You then sprinkle on some asiago cheese and let it melt, both onto the onions and into the sauce. As simple as the sauce is with just broth and cream, once you add the juices from the onions and bacon and you roast it so that it reduces and concentrates its flavour it becomes so irresistibly good! The, you'll be licking your plate clean, kind of good! These creamy asiago bacon wrapped roasted onions are sure to be the star of your next meal!

Tender slow roasted bacon wrapped onions in a tasty creamy asiago sauce!


ingredients
  • 4/8 slices thick cut bacon
  • 2 large onions, peeled and cut in half
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup beef broth (or mushroom broth)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup of asiago cheese (or parmesan), grated
directions
  1. Pre-cook the bacon until until it's starting to get cooked but it's still soft and pliable and set aside on paper towels to cool.
  2. Wrap the onion halves with the bacon, optionally pinning it on with toothpicks, and place them in a baking dish before drizzling them with oil and seasoning with thyme, salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Pour the mixture of the broth, cream and worcestershire around the onions and roast in a preheated 375F/190C oven until the onions are nice and tender, about 30-45 minutes depending on how thick they are. (You may need to cover with foil if the edges of the bacon start to get too dark to prevent burning.)
  4. Sprinkle the cheese on and bake until it has melted, just a few minutes.

Option: Throw some full cloves of garlic into the pan with the sauce!

Love those little cast iron pans! Any idea where I could find some?

Liz Chandler: I got the cast iron pans at Homesense, a store similar to/owned by Marshalls.

I love making your recipes, and this one looks like a must for some snowy, blustery day this winter. I'm reading this while I wait for your chicken piccata to cook.
