Roasted onions with cheese
- 8 smallish red onions, (or brown), about 100g each
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 25g butter
- 100ml dry cider
- 150g Asda Brie (or Camembert)
Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Peel the onions and cut off the roots, leaving the bases intact so they will sit steadily in the cooking dish but not fall apart during cooking. Cut a cross in the top of each one, about three quarters of the way down.
Brush all over with oil and put in a roasting tin with any remaining oil. Put a small piece of butter on top of each onion, pressing it into the cross. Pour over the cider. Cover loosely with foil and cook in the oven for 30 minutes.
Remove the foil and baste the onions with the cider. Return to the oven and cook, uncovered, for a further 25 minutes, basting every so often.
Cut the cheese into 8 pieces and press a piece into the top of each onion. Cook for a further 5 minutes or until the cheese melts.
