How to Make Melted Onions

To make melted onions, you’ll only need some onions, melted butter, salt and pepper, and a muffin tin. That’s it.

First, peel the onions and cut them in half. Place the halves inside muffin tin cups and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pop in an oven at 425F for 20 minutes.

Take the muffin tin out of the oven and brush each onion with melted butter. Return to the oven for another 40 minutes. You’ll want to brush them again with melted butter towards the end of those 40 minutes. Finally, take the onions out of the oven, let them cool for several minutes, and serve.
