Barefoot Blogger – Herb Roasted Onions

I am so excited to share one of this month’s Barefoot Blogger recipe with you.  It is so yummy and I am not a big onion fan!  I did shed a few tears over this recipe though as I cut up the onions.

I have been looking for an additional side dish to serve for Thanksgiving dinner and I think I have found it! (I”ll share my whole Thanksgiving menu next week)

This recipe was selected by Kelly from Baking with the Boys – thank you Kelly!!

This is an easy to prepare dish and it smells yummy while it’s cooking and tastes even better – even the burnt parts taste great.

I followed the recipe as is except I used only red onions because that’s what I had.  I also used dried thyme instead of fresh.

    Onions are a staple in Switzerland and Peter’s family make all kinds of onion dishes… this one looks terrific and maybe now I can compete with his sisters in the “great onion cooking abilities” department.
