Title: Blossoming Onion
Yield: 4 Servings
Categories: Appetizers, Snacks, Vegetables, Vegetarian

Ingredients:

2 lg Red onions; about. 1 1/2 lbs
1/2 c Bread crumbs; or Panko
1 ts Garlic powder
1/2 ts Paprika
2 lg Egg whites


Preheat the oven to 375* F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with olive oil
spray.

Peel the skin from the onions and trim the bottoms so that the onions sit
flat. Starting at the center of the top of each onion and working around
it, cut 20 to 30 slits, cutting only three-quarters into the onion for a
"flower" effect. Transfer to the baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the
bread crumbs, garlic powder and paprika. Set aside. In another bowl, whisk
the egg whites lightly with a fork. Pour the whites over the onion to cover
thoroughly and then sprinkle evenly with the seasoned crumbs. Spray lightly
with olive oil spray and bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until the onions are
lightly browned. Serve Immediately. >From: irene@1starnet.com
