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

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

The news of Naomi Judd's passing due to suicide hit many hard, including myself. The Judds music has been a part of my life since they first hit the music scene. Naomi's Home Companion cookbook is a part of my cookbook collection, so I knew it needed to be taken off the shelf and some recipes from it made.

This onionelles recipe is included in the "tradition" chapter of the cookbook. Being into nutrition and healthNaomi wrote this as the introduction to this appetizer recipe: "The top 10 anti-aging veggies and fruits (in alphabetical order) are: avocado, berries, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, citrus fruits, grapes, onions, spinach and tomatoes."

These onionelles surprised me. With Parmesan, onion and bread (with mayo!), I knew it would be good. What I didn't expect was for it to be so good. The creaminess of the mayonnaise and Parmesan complement the crispy 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 at my house, too. Starting my tradition now, and will remember Naomi with each bite.

I watched Ashley Judd talk about her mother's suicide last night, and my heart just broke. Such a horrible tragedy and devastating loss. Thank you for sharing something positive about Naomi Judd, and helping to shine a light on depression and suicide, Donna John .
