I am hosting my first holiday this year...Easter. I have always loved this holiday and have visions of hosting Easter brunch in the years ahead while Layla (and hopefully some cousins one of these days) have a big Easter egg hunt in the yard.
On the menu this year will be french toast souffle, spinach and Gruyere Strata, yogurt with berries and granola, scones, a large ham, salad and sides, bread and cheese, along with various cocktails, coffee and desserts.
Over the next week, I will be posting some recipes that I think would be perfect for entertaining a crowd. I hope you enjoy.
This recipe doesn't necessarily work for brunch but would be perfect for Easter dinner or any special occasion. This recipe has become one of our family favorites and goes really well with red meat. This is one of those recipes that I will be passing down one day. It is very easy to make and requires very little hands on time.
Bakes Onions with Gruyere Cheese
Makes 6 servings (2 halves per person)
6 small to medium yellow onions-peeled and cut in half
2/3 cup beef stock
2-3 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 grated Gruyere cheese (you can add more to taste)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a 13" x 9" baking dish place onion halves cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 45-50 minutes; until soft.
2. Remove onions from the oven and drizzle with 2/3 cup of beef stock and soy sauce. Place back in the oven and bake an additional 1 hour.
3. Sprinkle with cheese and broil until melted.
