Black Tie Stir Fry

A Guest Post by MiddleSister a What’s On Hand Dinner

Happy 2013!!! Tonight, I decided to clean out the fridge and call it dinner. With the mixture that I had on hand, stir fry was a sure deal, but I had to change it up a little. I didn’t feel like rice, and I had some bowtie pasta on hand. My husband always wants some red meat so veggie and pasta alone would not do. Everything else was thanks to a left over veggie tray, some frozen broccoli begging to leave the freezer and some veggies that were not looking to make it much longer and be as fresh as I would like them to be.

Baked Onions

Updated for the Aloha Blog Hop that we got from Mom Uncensored.  Thanks Mom!! The hosts for the Aloha Blog Hop are What Jean Likes and Local Sugar Hawaii.  Wow…connecting with people all around the world just like that.  Thank you Blogosphere for taking me places I could never have imagined.

Actually I’ve only done these in the oven once or twice.  I usually cook them on the grill with chicken or pork.  An onion with a portabella mushroom is a great meatless meal.  I wonder what a little Balsamic vinegar drizzled in the onion would taste like?  I may have to give that a try.

Baked Onions

  •  1 stick butter, room temperature (you won’t use it all)
  • 1 small bag frozen mixed vegetables
  • 6 medium white onions
  • 6 beef bullion cubes or a scant teaspoon of the powdered bulliion


Preheat oven to 350°.

Slice the top off the onions about ½ – ¾” from the top and hollow out to about a ¾  inch core with a melon baller almost to the bottom of the onion. (Try not to puncture to the outside of the onion.)  Insert a bullion cube and a some of frozen vegetables in each onion and then seal the top with the softened butter.

Wrap each onion in heavy duty aluminum foil and bake for about 30-40 minutes.  Place these close together to hold them upright.
