When large onions can be secured, a very appetizing as well as attractive dish can be prepared by stuffing them and then baking them brown.
(Sufficient to Serve Six)
- 6 large onions
- 1 c. dried bread crumbs
- 2 Tb. butter
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 tsp. celery salt
- 1/4 c. milk
Peel the onions and cook them in boiling salted water until almost tender. Remove from the water and take out the inner portions of the onions, leaving the outside layers in the shape of a cup. Chop the portions of the onions which have been removed and mix with the bread crumbs. Melt the butter, add to it the chopped onion, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and celery salt, and stir all together for a few minutes over the flame. Add the milk, and if the 1/4 cupful is not sufficient to make the stuffing moist, add more. Fill the onion shells with the stuffing, place in a hot oven, and bake until brown. Serve immediately.
