Holiday Hit - Pear & Red Onion Gratin

I wanted to share a “holiday hit” with you.   This side dish is beyond tasty and very healthy. 

• 1 large red onion
• 3 ripe Bosc pears
• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
• 1 tablespoon thyme
• 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
• 1 cup coarse pork rinds (as substitute for breadcrumbs)
• 1/3 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

 1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Halve and core each pear; cut each half into 6 slices. Cut onion into 16 wedges and place them in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish (spray with cooking spray) along with the pear slices, thyme, and sea salt; toss to combine. Cover with foil.
3. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring twice.
4. Meanwhile, combine pork rinds and cheese in a small bowl. Drizzle with the 2 tablespoons olive oil; stir to combine.
5. Remove the pan from the oven, sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over the gratin, return to the oven and roast until the breadcrumbs are well browned, 20 to 30 minutes more.  

Enjoy !!!!!!
