Spinach Stuffed Onions

Comment on this recipe

I added a crumb topping of Pepperidge Farm stuffing mixed with a little margarine.

Ingredients

3 sweet, large onions
1 package (10 ounces) spinach, thawed
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash nutmeg
Grinding of black pepper
Sliced stuffed olives

Instructions

Peel and halve the onions. Parboil gently in salted water, until barely tender, about 10 minutes. Drain. Remove centers and leave thick shell for each onion half. Chop the center portions to make aobut 3/4 cup; save rest for another use. Thaw spinach and press out liquid. Combine with the 3/4 chopped onion, mayonnaise, lemon juice, cheese, olives and seasonings. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place onion shells in the shallow baking dish and spoon spinach filling into the centers. Bake, uncovered for 20 minutes or until heated through.
