Onions Stuffed with Cheese & Tomatoes

Stuffed Onions with Cheese & Tomatoes

Mamta Gupta


One day, I was making stuffed peppers and I had some stuffing left over. Wondering what to do with it, I spotted half an onion left over from an omelette I had made earlier. So I shelled it into 2 cups, filled them with remaining stuffing and baked them along with the peppers. They came out really tasty, something I will definitely make again. You can wrap them in a foil and cook them on a BBQ too.

You can stuff onion with a meat or fish or prawn filling too.Serves 4-6
