Roasted Parmesan – Creamed Onions

Sharing is caring!

I’m making a call out to all the onion lovers out there. Are you with me? You have to try this!!
Roasted sliced onions, that are bathed in a white wine and parmesan cream sauce, studded with a hint of fresh sage or thyme! This is a perfect side dish to go along with your turkey day dinner, or any dinner for that matter!

The cream and wine saturate these sweet roasted onions, and gives them such a luxurious flavor. You will be smitten with the first bite!!
Recipe Adapted From: Rick Tramonto’s Osteria
***Take 4 yellow onions, peel and slice them 1/4 inch thick, and carefully place them on a baking sheet, rings intact. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast them at 375F for about 15 minutes.

***While onions are roasting, place 1 cup of heavy cream and 1/4 cup of white wine in a small saucepan and simmer till it starts to bubble around the edges. Remove from stove.
***After 15 minutes, carefully take the onions off the baking sheet and transfer into a shallow baking dish, still keeping rings intact. Spoon cream sauce over each onion, maybe a little more black pepper, cover with foil and cook another 20-25 min’s.
***Remove from oven, take off foil, and raise temp to 450F. Shave, or grate your parmesan on top of each onion, place back in hot oven till golden brown. About 5 min’s till they caramelize.

Garnish with fresh sage leaves or thyme.
Hope you’re enjoying your weekend,
Buon Appetito Everyone!!!

  10. Italy + Food = Delicious food plus longevity.

  21. I’m almost afraid to make this for fear that my fiance’s head may explode from delight.

  22. These look delicious. I wish my husband weren’t so afraid of onions (and cream…and cheese).

    I will definitely consider these for my next dinner party when people with normal appetites are eating with me.

  23. I love onions. I’m with you on this one. What a great dish. I can’t wait to try 🙂

  24. Those onions look great! I really like the sound of roasted creamed onions!

  25. I’m a huge onion ring fan, but I’ve never thought to make a side dish with onions as the ‘star’! What a neat idea. Sounds tremendously appetizing!!

  26. Oh YUM!!! This is one of those dishes that I would have a hard time sharing..
    It looks so wonderful Marie!!

  27. How gorgeous your onions are. This fits the bill of what I consider a “party dish,” perfect for entertaining a lot of people. Thanks!

  28. Hi Mary from NJ, You absolutely can do this the day before, in fact, I’ve done it both ways. Cooked completely, and then heated up the next day. or just roast the onions the day before, and put the cream sauce on the day of. hope this helps!

  29. This onion lover says “woooohooo!” to this!

  30. I am smitten already, Marie. I am so going to make this recipe. Thanks!

  31. can I do any of this the day before? It looks yummy!

    i’m not cooking thanksgiving this year – we’re flying on the day. but well, new years eve – with a great steak?

  33. I’m not a huge onion fan but those look too good to pass up. I’ll give them a try for sure.

  34. Fantastic, scrumptuous looking side. Can’t wait to try it.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  35. You did a roated onion with balamic last year that I thought was tops, and now you tempt me with this. I’m drooling.

  36. i love ur first pic. i never make onions on their own but this would change that for me! love it.

  37. Did you say “onion lovers”? Eccomi. Especially roasted onions. This dish is difficult to resist.

  38. oh I am soooo with you! I am the hugest onion lover around! ha ha.
    I make something similiar to this for the holidays, but I use ground up ritz crackers, cheddar cheese, a touch of sherry, few other things. But I have to try this one! This is perfecto!

  39. I love onions, so I’d love to try your version someday Marie!

    Are you cooking for Thanksgiving? It is the first ione I’m not cooking in 27 years! We are going to my brother’s home as he was blessed with another grandchild this year, # 7, and they wanted to host the meal for all the extended family.

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanskgiving!

    Hugs, Pat

  40. Wow delicious combo and looks so beautiful.

  41. Those look amazing, I might end up eating them alone, but would that really be so bad?

  42. This has ME written all over it. I think I will do it for dinner next weekend with friends. I was planning a pot roast since we will be turkeyed out after one day.

  43. Wow Maria, this looks so good… I love onions cooked and I will be trying this dish… Thanks so much for the recipe…
    Have a blessed Sunday…

  47. Oh wouldn’t these be a perfect treat for the holidays:D

  48. I was hoping you would post your onion recipe, Marie! Thanks so much. It’s so much better than those frozen creamed onions 😉

    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

  49. Since I am lucky enough to be related to you and got to try these onions, I can attest that they are delish. I love onions cooked in any manner, but this was kind of like creamed onions. Very good!

  50. Thanks for this ! I going straight away to cry over my onions. Can’t wait!

  51. This sounds really good, I LOVE roasted veggies…I’ll try it for sure. It does sound good with turkey. Thanks for the idea!

  52. They’re on my list too.

  53. Ooooh yeaaahh! My goodness do these look good! My hubby and I as well as my youngest child would gobble this up. I’m printing this out to have over the holidays … if I can wait that long! YUM!

  54. Oh, this would be good with so many different things! This sounds like a recipe that really brings out the onion’s full potential!

    BTW, I’ve passed on an award to you, Marie. It’s over at my blog! You know how much I love yours!

  55. Oh Marie these look perfect for our thanksgiving dinner, I will have a trial run tomorrow. hugs, Kathy.

    ps I will make them for Jack Black at Christmas too, smiles.

  56. You are so right this would go perfectly with Thanksgiving dinner, I’m bookmarking this one!

  57. M,
    I like your version of “creamed onions”.
    My family never had that tradition at Thanksgiving, though I have made it for company with little pearl onions. I like your twist on it!

  58. I am the only one in my house that loves onions so more for me.

  59. This looks like heaven. I am definitely making this Marie! Thank you so much for sharing. Good thing I picked up that bag of onions yesterday while at Super Target.

  60. I LOVE onions, I only wish mrChaos shared my tastes but alas, he does not.
