Ingredients

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Cut the ends off each end of the onion, peel, and then remove the inner layers. Your onion should be a bottomless, hollow shell, about 1/2″ thick.

3. After all onions are peeled and hollowed-out, place them in a casserole dish.

4. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the ground meat of your choice, egg, Italian seasoning, Parmesan cheese and Worcestershire sauce.

5. Press about one tablespoon of the meat mixture into each onion (the exact amount you use will depend on the size of your onions).

6. Press down with your fingers to compact the meat, making an indentation in the middle of your meat where you can insert a cube of cheese.

7. Fill your onions to the top with more meat mixture, to cover the cheese.

8. Bake for 35-45 minutes.

Tips

Skinny it up!

Use ground chicken breast or ground turkey breast or 97% lean ground beef. Switch out whole fat cheddar for low fat cheddar or a laughing cow cheese wedge. Top with marinara sauce for a tasty low calorie / low carb addition, which will count it as part of your veggie servings.
