Keto Baked Creamy Baby Onions with Crackling Crumb

Baked Onions
Baked Onions

I love this dish! I baked baby onions in a thyme-infused cream and topped with a crumb made from blitzed lean pork scratchings and finely grated Parmesan. When I made this dish for us, we ended up eating them on top of our grilled pork chops: Lush! The peeling of the onions is mind-numbingly annoying and a finicky job, but the results are worth it in the end. Be sure to keep the little root end intact to ensure the onions keep their shape, but use a small, sharp paring knife to trim it close enough that the entire onion is edible. (And don’t jab yourself like I did doing that …. #BloodFest2018)

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F.
  2. Place the peeled baby onions in a bowl and drizzle over the olive oil. Toss to evenly coat then transfer to a small, deep roasting dish where they can nestle together in an even layer. Season with salt and white pepper.
  3. Cover the dish with foil and place into the oven for 30 minutes, then remove and set aside while you increase the oven temperature to 180°C / 355°F.
  4. In the meantime, gently warm the cream in a small pan along with three-quarters of the picked thyme leaves. Once warmed through, remove the foil from the dish and pour the mixture over the partially-baked onions.
  5. Return the dish (uncovered) to the oven for 15-20 min. In that time, blitz the crackling in a mini food processor and combine with the Parmesan.
  6. After 15 minutes, scatter over half the crumb mixture over the onion and bake for another 10 minutes. The onions should be completely softened, but still holding their shape.
  7. To serve, season with a pinch of Pink Himalayan Salt and freshly ground black pepper. Scatter over the remaining picked thyme leaves.
  8. You will still have leftover crumb mixture to scatter over if you want added crunch.
  9. The full macro-breakdown (and allergens) can be found further down this page (keep scrolling), as well as the link to PIN THE RECIPE (for those on Pinterest).
