Sausage Stuffed Onions

recipe Detail


These sausage stuffed onions are time-consuming but worth it in the end. Use whatever onions you have on hand and whichever Italian sausage you prefer. I personally like red onions and hot Italian sausage best. These are company-worthy, and best served with bread for mopping up all of that delicious pan juice.


- 4 large onions

- 1 lb sausage

- Olive oil

- Salt

- Pepper

- Dried oregano

- Dried thyme

- Dried basil


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).


2. Cut off the tops of the onions and peel off the outer layer. Cut a small slice off the bottom of each onion so they can stand upright.


3. Using a small spoon or melon baller, carefully hollow out the inside of each onion, leaving about 1/4 inch of onion on the sides and bottom. Reserve the scooped out onion for later use.


4. In a skillet, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook until browned, breaking it up into small pieces as it cooks.


5. Meanwhile, preheat a separate skillet over medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the reserved scooped out onions and cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes.


6. Season the cooked onions with salt, pepper, dried oregano, dried thyme, and dried basil. Stir in the cooked sausage.


7. Stuff each hollowed out onion with the sausage and onion mixture, packing it in tightly.


8. Place the stuffed onions in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with more dried herbs if desired.


9. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes.


10. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the onions are tender and the sausage is fully cooked.


11. Serve hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired. Enjoy your delicious and simple Sausage Stuffed Onions!
