  • 2 large Spanish onions halved
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 oz butter
  • 2 oz lean smoked bacon derinded and chopped
  • 3 to matoes peeled and chopped
  • 5 oz button mushrooms sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano


  • Scoop a hollow in the centre of each onion half with a teaspoon, reserving the scooped out onion. Place the halves in a saucepan and cover with water. Add a little salt, bring to the boil and cook for about 15 minutes, until almost tender. Drain well.
  • Meanwhile, chop the reserved onion. Melt the butter in a non-stick frying pan and cook the bacon and onion for 4-5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and mushrooms and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the parsley and cheese and season to taste with salt, pepper and oregano.
  • Fill the onion halves with this mixture and put in an ovenproof dish. Cover the base of the dish with water to a depth of 1 cm (1/2 inch). Cook in the oven for 12 - 15 minutes.
  • Check the onions for tenderness after they have been boiled for about 15 minutes. The time will, of course, depend on how much onion you have
  • scooped out from the centres.
