  • 4 sweet onions or yellow onions
  • 4 Tbsp. salted butter melted
  • 4 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tsp. cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves (use 1/4 tsp dried thyme if you don't have fresh)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Start by cutting off the top of the onion and a sliver of the base of the onion (where you can see the root). Peel off the papery layer plus one more layer of the onion. Repeat on remaining onions.
  • Cut 4 slits on the top of the onion about 1/2 inch down. Repeat on remaining onions.
  • Place the onions in a small baking dish. An 8x8 pan or even a pie pan will work.
  • Pour over the butter evenly over the onions. Drizzle over one tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce over each onion.
  • Spread one teaspoon of cream cheese over each onion with a small knife.
  • Sprinkle each onion evenly with the salt, pepper, garlic powder and thyme.
  • Place baking dish in the center of the onion and bake for 35-45 minutes or until onions are heating through.
  • Serve an entire onion for each person or cut in half. Drizzle with sauce that is on the bottom of the baking dish.
