Purple Onions

We picked up some beautiful long-stemmed purple onions at the farmers’ market last weekend.

Is long-stemmed the right description?  They seem basically like an over-developed purple scallion – except the insides are neon yellow and beautiful.


Since the upper part reminds me of scallions, we decided to put them to good use tonight as a baked potato topping.

Applied to the potato, they’re not quite as pretty as green onions, but they still made for a delicious dinner: baked potatoes with bacon, greek yogurt, purple onions, habanero jack cheese and broccoli.  Yum – and it’s not spaghetti carbonara, for once.  (Can you tell I like bacon?)
