Cry Me an Onion WINNER!!!!

May 1st, 2009

I know you have been waiting patiently all month to know if you won the Cry Me an Onion contest and the lovely prize of Vegetable Love. Thank you for all participating. In the end I compiled 21 different recipes from spreads to soups, from pizzas to curries. I love the different varieties and am enjoying working my way through them. I still have two onions left… no sure what I’ll make next though…

In order to pick the winner, I numbered up the comments and added the email responses… I then plugged 1 to 21 into the random generator… The winner is Wyn of Wyn’s Recipes.

Congratulations! I will be emailing you shortly. If I do not hear from you within two weeks, I will pick a new winner.

Now, a note about this recipe. Ben of What’s Cooking? suggested his stuffed onions. This recipe is a bit out of my comfort zone. The only time I’ve used ground beef is for hamburgers. Ben’s recipe gives a number of alterations so I made it with corn and ground beef. I am really glad I chose this recipe. The onions were not too over powering. The ground beef, corn and cheese was a delicious combination. It was great! Thanks Ben! Again, thank you all for participating!

Stuffed onions
(adapted from here)

* 2-3 onions (the size will depend on your appetite and you can go with white or red onions)
* 1 garlic clove, chopped
* 1/4 lb ground meat
* 3/4 cup corn
* 1 large eggs
* 1/2 tsp oregano
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese

1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F (175°C)
2. Cut about ½” of the onion tops and trim just enough from the bottom so they can stand upright. With an ice cream scoop or spoon, scoop out the layers of the onion leaving just a few of the outer layers. Reserve the scooped out onion
3. Chop about 2/3 of the scooped out onion and sautee in a large skillet in olive oil and garlic. Add ground meat and cook until brown over medium heat. Add corn, mix well and remove from heat.
4. In a large bowl whisk eggs, spices and parmesan cheese together. Add cooked meat and mix well.
5. Spoon meat into the onion shells and put on a baking sheet. Bake for about 30 minutes and let them rest for a couple of minutes before serving.
