Blow Out My Aorta” Baked Onions


This is a treat to have something like this at a tailgate or picnic because you surely you can’t have these on a regular basis. Anything that starts with Cream and adds cheese… God love ya.
It’s noble, delicious and from a health standpoint, a wonderful bad example for the human body. Pick a good size onion and be aware the cores, tops and bottoms you trim off are to be saved and chopped for the filling!"

4 med Onions, (tennis ball size) White preferred, peeled
4 slices Pancetta or Bacon
2 whole Garlic cloves, chopped fine
4 twigs Fresh Rosemary, chopped
8 tbs Heavy Cream
¼ cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
2 glugs Olive oil

Boil the onions in plenty of water for 15 minutes, remove and allow to cool. Remove the top inch from each onion, Chop the tops and set aside.
