  • 6 large Quebec onions
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp.) olive oil
  • 227 g (8 oz) Quebec coffee mushrooms, diced
  • 250 g (1/2 lb.) ham, diced
  • 1 egg
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) olive oil
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) bread crumbs
  • 2 Quebec celery stalks, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) parmesan cheese, freshly grated

  1. Peel onions without cutting the base. Cook in a pot of boiling water over medium heat for 10 minutes. Remove from water and cool. Cut off the tops about one third of the way down. Using a pointy knife, hollow out centre of each onion.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high and sear mushrooms for 3 to 4 minutes. Mix ham, egg, olive oil, bread crumbs, celery, garlic, parmesan, nutmeg and mushrooms in a large bowl. Season and mix well.
  3. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F).
  4. Using a teaspoon, stuff onions and stand in an oiled dish; bake for 40 minutes. If desired, accompany with sautéed Swiss chard or other green vegetable.
