Winning Recipe from Food Challenge

We’ve had a vast amount of requests (2) for Katie’s recipe that won the challenge so here it is.

Roasted Sweet Onions with Cabrales Blue Cheese

  • 4 large Vidalia or other sweet onions, cut crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 ounces Cabrales or other strong blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Sherry wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds, lightly toasted
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh chives

Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange onions in single layer on rimmed baking sheet; drizzle 1/4 cup olive oil over; turn onions to coat. Sprinkle with salt. Roast until soft and brown on edges, turning every 15 minutes, about 1 hour. Transfer to platter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cool. (Can be made 4 hours ahead. Cover; let stand at room temperature.)

Sprinkle cheese over onions. Drizzle 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, then vinegar over cheese and onions. Sprinkle with almonds, then chives and serve.

  1. Dear Chef Rouler,

    Invited to a last minute get together on NY Eve, I was looking for an easy yet tasty hors d oeuvres recipe and happened upon ROASTED SWEET ONIONS WITH CABRALES BLUE CHEESE. Placed amongst a large spread of appetizers, this dish was the hit of the night. You may now add 2 additional requests for the recipe to your tally (it was a small party or I’m sure there would be more).

    Thanks for posting this recipe and congrats to Katie for winning this year’s challenge.
