Ingredients

  • 6 large red onions, about 8 to 10 ounces each
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup diced apples
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (6-ounce) package wild rice, cooked according to package directions
  • 1/2 cup lightly toasted walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
  • 2 tablepoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup grated Dry Jack, or white cheddar
  • 1/2 to 1 cup chicken stock, or vegetable stock

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.

Peel the onions. Trim the stem ends so they will stand upright and remove the top 1/2-inch. Rub oil on each onion and season lightly with salt and pepper. Place in a baking dish, and bake, root ends down, until golden brown and just tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour (depending upon the size). Remove from the oven and let rest until cool enough to handle. When cool enough to handle, push out the centers, leaving a shell. Return one piece of the removed onion to each to form a bottom and chop the remaining onion centers to measure 1 cup.

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the 1 cup of chopped onion and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, apples, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the cooked rice, walnuts, sage, and parsley, and stir well. Add 1/4 cup of the cheese and stir well. Stuff the onions with the rice mixture and place in a baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup cheese over the tops of the onions, and add stock to come 1/2-inch up the sides of the onions. Bake until tender and bubbly, about 20 to 30 minutes, basting occasionally. Serve immediately.
