Oven Mitt Easy Oven Mitt Medium Oven Mitt Hard


Ingredients

  • 4-6 whole medium onions (red, yellow or white)
  • 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

DIRECTIONS 

1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. 

2. Line sheet pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

3. Using a knife and cutting board, trim the dried brown root end from onion, as well as a bit of the stem. Avoid cutting too much root from the onion so it won’t fall apart. 

4. Cut the onion in half lengthwise, through the stem end. Then cut each half in half again to make 4 pieces. Peel off the papery and/or shriveled skin. 

5. Place trimmed and peeled onions on sheet pan, drizzle with oil then sprinkle with salt and pepper.

6. Roast for 30-40 minutes depending on the size of the onions. Flip onions about halfway through cooking time.
