Roasted onions are a lovely side dish to pair with any meat or to use as a base for a sauce or dressing. Check out the Roasted Allium Spread (recipe here) for one way to turn this simple side into a burger-friendly spread.
2 cups pearl onions
2 teaspoons melted duck fat, bacon fat, butter, or coconut oil
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon of your favorite spice blend (optional)
You can also make this recipe with large onions chopped into 1/2 inch pieces.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, toss the onions with the melted duck fat, bacon fat, butter, or coconut oil. Spread the onions evenly on a baking sheet or in a large cast iron skillet.
Sprinkle them with sea salt and black pepper (and additional spices if you like).
Roast for 30 minutes or until the onions appear translucent and have browned a bit on the edges.
