Cipollini and Apples with Bacon

"The holidays are the only time I feel it's worth it to fool around with these tiny onions. They become really tender and brown, which pairs well with the slight crunch from the apples. And the browned onions and pink fruit look just lovely together and brighten up the table." --Tiffany Vickers Davis, Assistant Test Kitchen Director
