Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Halve each onion through the middle. Microwave in pairs for 4 mins on High until soft. Remove the middles of the onions, leaving about 3 outer layers in place, like little bowls.
  2. Whizz the onion middles in a food processor until pulpy. Mix with the mozzarella, half the cheddar, the olives, peppers, garlic, crumbs and most of the thyme, then season well. Spoon the filling into the onion cases and transfer to a baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cheddar and thyme, then roast for 15 mins until hot through and golden.

Very tasty, I served them alongside a spicy sausage and potato bake.
The next day I reheated the last one to have on a baked potato.
