We have been able to dig up many of our onions and this is one of my favorite recipes.....I hope you enjoy it!!!
Vegetable-Stuffed Baked Onions
8-10 medium onions peeled
4 strips bacon
3/4 cups carrots

1-1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
3 tablespoons butter melted
1-1/2 teaspoons salt (less if you like)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 beef broth
Cut 1/2 inch off top of onion and trim bottom to be able to sit flat...scoop out center leaving 1/2 in shell of onion. (Chop up rest of middle of onion to add to your stuffing mix)
Place onion shells in a square pan and cover with water..bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer 8-10 minutes.
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp...place bacon on paper towel and save 1 teaspoon drippings
