Kelly of Baking with the Boys chose Ina’s Herb Roasted Onions for all of the Barefoot Bloggers to try out. I thought this was an interesting choice for the group, we haven’t had side dishes yet and some people are really iffy on onions. When I was growing up, I would not eat them. At all. I thought they were smelly and gross and I would pick every last one out of whatever I was eating. If you would have told me back then that one day I would make a whole side dish out of nothing but onions and actually eat it… I would have fainted.
These were very good. The only thing I messed up was I didn’t mix the dressing in a separate bowl. That meant I had to stir a lot and ending up stirring out the wedge shapes. I used a mild dijon mustard and dried herbs instead of fresh. I also cut back the salt a by a quarter of a teaspoon. The onions came out pretty sweet and the flavors of lemon and dijon were a good balance.
