Prep Time20 minsCook Time1 hrTotal Time1 hr 20 mins
 2 medium onions (topped, tailed, peeled and halved)
 8 rashers streaky bacon
 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
 2 tsp thyme leaves (chopped)
 1 cup beef stock (or broth)
 ½ cup cream
 ½ cup parmesan (grated)
 1 pinch salt and black pepper
1

Preheat the oven to 180.

2

Get the oil hot in a large pan and add the onions. Leave them to go dark brown on one side before turning them. Once they are brown, remove them from the heat.

3

In a bowl, whisk together the beef broth and cream.

4

Wrap the rashers around the onions, pinning them with toothpicks to stay in place, and pack them tightly in a lasagne dish.

5

Pour the cream mixture around them and give the onions a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkling of thyme, and some salt and pepper.

6

Now roast them for 40 minutes, uncovered.

7

Before serving, top each onion with some grated parmesan and bang them back in the oven either under the grill, or at a high heat to get that cheese golden and gooey.
