Contrary to the opinion of many, the onion is not objectionable as an article of food. Judiciously used it fills as important a place in cooking as salt or any other seasoning.
Onions, large, 6.
Put onions into a saucepan of water, or water and milk mixed in equal proportions; add salt and boil till tender. When done so that they can be easily mashed, work them up with a little butter into a paste. Cover with bread crumbs and bake in a moderate oven.
Peel the desired number of onions, being careful not to cut off the root end. Take out the inside of the onion and fill the hole with a mixture of bread crumbs, beaten egg, and a little milk. Season with salt and sage. Bake in oven until brown.
