Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Heat butter in a 10-inch cast-iron or heavy-bottomed stainless-steel skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add onions, cut-side down. Place bay leaves and thyme in the spaces between the onions so the herbs will flavor the butter. Cook until the onions are dark brown on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn them over and season with salt and pepper. Add broth. Cover with foil and transfer the pan to the oven.

  • Bake the onions until very tender, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately, with the pan sauce spooned on top. Garnish with more thyme, if desired.
