  • Skin the onions .Use caution to not take too much of the nutrient laden skin.
  • Cut them into halves then quarters.
  • Keep them dry so they will take on more olive oil and not dry out in roasting.
  • Put them in a small bowl and slather them with good olive oil.
  • Place them in a baking dish or pan.

Preheat an conventional oven or convection oven to about 375 degrees.

  • Do not cover the pan.
  • Bake about one half hour until nice and brown–or the color you want.

These will travel well and will keep in the refrigerator for about a week.
