Baked Onion

Oh onions… we have had a love hate relationship ever since I was young. To this day I still order a burger with no onions but swap my fries for onion rings. Onions themselves are low in fat, sodium and cholesterol (not so much when in ring form) and provide loads of vitamin C, fiber, folate and vitamin B6. Here is a great, easy recipe for everyone… even the onion haters.

1 large Vidalia onion (or another sweet onion variety)
3 TBSP parmesan cheese, grated
3 TBSP of your fave BBQ sauce

Peel your onion and cut into 6 wedges being careful not to cut all the way through to the bottom. Place the onion on a large sheet of foil, slightly pulling apart wedges. Drizzle with BBQ sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Wrap the onion tightly in foil and bake in your oven at 450 degrees for 40 minutes until onion is tender. Open the foil pouch (leaving the onion inside) and turn your oven on to broil. Place onion back in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until onion is slightly browned.
