  • Reviews

  • “Good one Tebo!I cut the cooking time back to 45 minutes (Ilike the onion to still be a bit crisp) and I used sweet onions.Nice addition to the dinner”

  • “Excellent! I love roasted red onions. The balsamic reduction was the perfect thing to drizzle on them. I cut the in half wertically before roasting, so they wouldn’t fall apart after roasting. This makes a great appetizer or side dish. If you’re an onion-lover, this is a must try. I may add some thyme or rosemary next time. Thanx!”
