Baked onions with bacon and Stilton in a creamy mustard sauce, these onions make the perfect accompaniment for your Sunday roast or Thanksgiving feast.
Thanksgiving is fast approaching for our American friends. I’ve started seeing all the wonderful food preparations being shared on instagram and talks of loved ones gathering. I cant help but feel we are missing out a little here. Thanksgiving seems like such a wonderful holiday. No loud build up or mad rush to buy presents. Just a time to give thanks for what we are great full for, appreciate the first harvest and gather family and friends together to enjoy good food. Like Christmas but without the cost and faff.
I guess our traditional Sunday roasts have the key elements of Thanksgiving, food and family. It was always tradition in our family, to gather without fail around the table on a Sunday for the roast dinner, even my brother usually with a hangover from Saturday night would have to join. This is tradition for lots of family’s including my boyfriends, his Dad cooking a roast every week. So when we lived at home I would often have two Roast dinners in one day. Jamie’s Dad would often roast whole onions to accompany the roast, these were new to my Sunday dinner plate and they were lovely sweet and caramelised. A vegetable in their own right not just an ingredient in a dish. So these baked onions are inspired by my boyfriends Dad, Keith. I have of course added a few little extras to pimp them up a little.
I hope anyone celebrating Thanksgiving next week has a wonderful time and if you don’t celebrate try and share a meal with your loved ones anyway, if you can.
