Baked Onions with Feta

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 onion)
Check the ingredient label when purchasing feta. Look for feta packed in water; it has a more pronounced flavor and tastes fresher.

  • 4 medium Vidalia or other sweet onions
  • Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.

  2. Peel onions, leaving root ends intact. Trim top third of each onion; reserve for another use. Arrange onions, cut sides down, in an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray; add chicken broth. Cover pan with foil; bake at 450° for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes. Carefully turn onions over with a spatula; bake an additional 30 minutes or until onions are soft and liquid has almost evaporated. Remove from oven.

  3. Preheat broiler.

  4. Combine feta, breadcrumbs, thyme, and pepper; stir with a fork until well blended. Gently pat cheese mixture evenly onto cut sides of onions. Broil onions until cheese mixture begins to brown (about 1 minute).
