Naomi Judd's Easy Onionelles Recipe: 4-Ingredient Appetizer Recipe Is Now a Family Tradition

The news of Naomi Judd’s Suicide Death hit many hard, including myself. the Judds music has been a part of my life since they first got into the music scene. Naomi’s roommate cookbook is part of my cookbook collection so i knew it had to be taken off the shelf and some recipes made from it.

This recipe for onions is included in the “tradition” chapter of the cookbook. concerned with nutrition and health, Naomi wrote this as an introduction to this appetizer recipe: “The top 10 anti-aging fruits and vegetables (in alphabetical order) are: avocado, berries, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, citrus fruits, grapes, onions, spinach, and tomatoes.”

These onions surprised me. With Parmesan cheese, onion and bread (with mayo!), I knew it would be good. What I didn’t expect was that it would be
So good. The creaminess of the mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese complement the crusty bread and soft, sweet onion perfectly. If I had started making this recipe when the book was first published in 1997, it would have been a family tradition in my home too. Start my tradition now and will remember Naomi with every bite.
