Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Preheat oven to 350&deg.
Whisk together wine and honey in a baking dish. Slice bottoms off onions so they will sit firmly in dish. Place onions in dish, cover with foil and bake 45 – 50 minutes. Baste occasionally being very careful when you remove foil, as steam will escape as you lift foil.
While onions are baking, prepare topping. Melt butter in a medium skillet. Add remaining ingredients and sauté about 2-3 minutes until breadcrumbs are crisp. Set aside.
Once onions are baked, remove foil and top each onion half with breadcrumb mixture. Continue baking, uncovered, another 15 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
