This was inspired by a Jamie Oliver recipe, but mine are slightly different because I made with what I had in the fridge. You can make these as a starter or lunch dish, they also make a nice side dish with a larger meal.
4 Onions (about the size of a tennis ball)
4 Slices of prosciutto (you could also use streaky bacon, or Parma ham
2 Tbsp Double Cream
2 Tbsp Breadcrumbs
2 Tbsp Parmesan
Salt & Pepper
- Peel the onions and put in a pot of water just coming to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain and allow to cool
- Cut the top of the onion and hollow about an inch of the centre of the onion and set to one
- Trim the bottom to make sure the onion can sit upright in a baking tray
- Chop the centre of the onion you removed, fry in the butter until it has started to colour, add the cream and salt and pepper then reduce the cream is no longer runny
- Wrap the hollowed out onion with a slice of prosciutto. You can use the woody part of a stalk of rosemary for more flavour if you have it. A cocktail stick works just as well at holding the prosciutto in place
- Divide the fried onions between the hollowed out onions, and top with the bread crumbs and parmesan.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 20 minutes, until the topping is golden and crunchy
