  • 2 large onions, 8 oz each without refuse
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Peel and trim the roots of the onions but leave them whole.
  • Cook the onions in a large pot of boiling water for 30 minutes, until tender. Use a slotted spoon to remove them to a plate.
  • Whisk the cream with the salt, pepper and thyme.
  • When the onions are cool enough to handle, slice each in half through the root. Place the onion halves, cut side down, in a small baking dish with the bay leaves. Pour the cream over the onions, sprinkle them with the Parmesan, and bake for 30 minutes, until golden.
