Microwave Steamed Sweet Onions with Meat and Cheese

Microwave Steamed Sweet Onions with Meat and Cheese

Whole sweet onions steamed in the microwave are so sweet and soft! The meat sauce and melted cheese really whet your appetite. Use as a dinner dish or as a drinking snack.

Ingredients: 2 to 4 servings

Sweet new harvest onions
300 g
Meat sauce
2 heaping tablespoons
Melting type cheese (I used mozzarella)
2 handfuls


1. Cut off the tops and bottoms of the onions so they'll stand up. Put on a heatproof dish, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 minutes at 600 W.
2. Remove the plastic, add the meat sauce and cheese, and microwave without replacing the plastic wrap for 2 minutes at 600 W.
3. Transfer to serving plates and enjoy.
4. Our family's meat sauce is made with tomato sauce, tomato paste, ground meat, red bell pepper, onion, carrot, and mushrooms.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wondered if I could make an easier version of meat-stuffed onions using some leftover meat sauce, and tried it out.
