Onions lose their bite and transform into a mellow, tender veggie when they're baked in the oven with a sweet and tangy sauce. Keeping the root end of the onions intact keeps them together while they cook. Serve this easy side dish alongside grilled or roasted pork, chicken or steak.

  • Combine butter and oil in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Whisk in vinegar, broth (or wine), honey, salt and pepper.

  • Leaving onions whole, remove the papery outer skins. Cut the onions in half from stem through root end. Place the onions in the baking dish, cut-sides up. Loosely cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.

  • Remove the foil. Using tongs, carefully turn the onions, keeping them intact. Bake, uncovered, until the onions are very tender and the honey mixture has thickened, 25 to 30 minutes more.
