Ingredients

  • 5 medium sweet white onions, such as Vidalia
  • 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef broth
  • 2 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup (about 4 oz.) finely shredded Gruyère cheese
  • 2 tsp. finely chopped fresh sage

    How to make it 


  • 1

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat large, shallow baking dish with cooking spray. Baking dish should be large enough to hold 10 onion halves.

  • 2

    Trim about 1/4 inch off top and bottom of onions so that halves sit flat on a plate. Cut onions in half crosswise and then peel them. Arrange onion halves, cut sides up, in baking dish.

  • 3

    Brush exposed onion tops with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake about 35 minutes.

  • 4

    In glass measuring cup, mix beef broth and soy sauce. Remove dish from oven and pour sauce over onions. Return to oven and continue baking about 1 hour, basting occasionally. If liquid evaporates, add a little water.

  • 5

    Remove dish from oven and sprinkle cheese and sage evenly over onions. Bake 5 to 7 minutes more or until cheese melts. Serves 10.
