There’s a million and one ways to cook an onion, all of which bring out the natural goodness of this vegetable. Onions are already packed with great flavor, but roasting them brings out the natural sugars.

If you haven’t tried roasting onions yet, definitely give this recipe a try. A few slices roasted on a pan will be delicious on their own, but we’ve added a little extra goodness to turn this into something a little heartier.
How does one make onions hearty? By adding cheese, of course! Roasted onions topped with a cheesy, creamy sauce – where do we sign up?!? The simple elegance of this dish is reason enough to make it, but the taste is out of this world.

3 sweet onions, peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne, optional
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 375º F.
Spread onion rings out in a 9×13-inch baking dish, keeping rings and layers intact, then drizzle with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
Place baking dish in oven and roast for 15 minutes, or until softened.
Remove onions from oven and raise temperature to 450º F.
Combine heavy cream, wine, butter, garlic powder and cayenne in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cook until butter is melted and bubbles form on the outside edge of cream.
Remove mixture from heat, then pour over pre-roasted onions, sprinkling parmesan cheese over all the onions.
Top baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for another 20 minutes. Remove foil and cook for another 5-10 minutes, or until onions are caramelized and cheese is golden brown.
Remove dish from oven and serve hot. Enjoy!
