  1. White onions (the bigger the better)
  2. Butter
  3. Ground meat – We use veal, but a mix of pork and beef could work too
  4. A slice of bread soaked in milk
  5. Grated Parmesan
  6. Parsley
  7. Garlic
  8. 1 egg
  9. A pinch of nutmeg
  10. Bread crumbs
  11. Salt and pepper
  12. A glass of white wine


  1. Peel the onions, halved them crosswise and soften them in boiling water for 15 minutes;
  2. In the meantime mix all other ingredients (except for the breadcrumbs and wine)  in a big bowl;
  3. Drain the onions well and separate the layers carefully so you are left with little ‘bowls’;
  4. Stuff the onions with the meat mix, top them with the breadcrumbs and some more Parmesan;
  5. Put the stuffed onions in a buttered baking tray with the white wine;
  6. Bake at 350F for about 40 minutes ensuring the onions remain tender to the touch.
