Dirty Rice Stuffed Onions

Crumbled spicy sausage, green onions, poblanos, and rice seasoned with creole seasoning and stuffed into a tender roasted yellow onion.

So this isn’t your most traditional dirty rice. Although this recipe doesn’t stray too far. The one change up is stuffing it into a roasted sweet onion. This recipe takes a simple dirty rice and transforms it with the sweetness of the caramelized onion. It actually acts as it’s own flavor bowl. After making this recipe it makes me wonder what other things I could stuff into it! Try this recipe out and let me know what you think..

TIPS AND TRICKS TO THE BEST DIRTY RICE STUFFED ONIONS:

fry your rice: once you’ve browned your sausage and veggies fry your rice in the residual oil. As long as you didn’t add oil prior to browning the meat you shouldn’t have as much oil in the pan at that point.

keep the skin on the onions: so I’m not suggesting you eat the onion skin here. when it comes time to remove the core and a couple outer layers the skin gives you something to hold on to. remove before eating.

use a regular sized fork: When removing the middle. as much as you may want to use a spoon. use a regular sized fork and pole the onion in middle and twist. You can either chop up the inner part of the onion and add it to the rice if you want more onion or you can save them for another recipe!

microwave if you need to save time: if you don’t have the time you can always split the top, wrap the onion in plastic wrap like a baked potato and heat for thirty second increments. wrapping it will cause it steam from the inside-out .

leave the root end: when you split them cut the top not the hairy side.

Sauté for five minutes till vegetables are browned. Season with sage, ground peppers, Cajun seasoning, and black pepper.
