    • 16 small onions, halved and peeled

    • 2 tablespoons dill, chopped

    Melt the butter, add the garlic and cook gently 1 to 2 minutes. Arrange the onions in a baking dish and pour 3/4 of the garlic butter over the onions.

    Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes or until tender. Before serving, reheat the remaining garlic butter, add the dill and pour over the onions.
