Master Chief turned his nose up at the eggy bread - until it was dipped into my delicious sauce. That's okay, I don't mind sharing.
Miss Chief (extremely apt nickname!) turned her little nose up at the eggy bread - but yummed up my baked onions.
I had eggy bread. Luckily for me, it was delicious.
It has however, lead me to add baked onions to my "Argh, what can I do for dinner?" list. I hadn't thought about doing them for the children before, they seemed to be the sort of thing you did for a dinner party (remember them?) but one of the major things I like about baked onions is that you don't have to peel the onions. Minimal prep is great, especially when you have a small one who really doesn't like it if she isn't attached to you. Of course, if you're slathering them in sauce them you'll want to peel them, but this can be done before or after cooking
I'm not sure how they actually made the sauce in the cafe but I have made it by just adding cheese to a basic white sauce. So, here's my "hit-with-a-three-year-old-and-a-one-year-old-baked-onions-in-gorgonzola-sauce recipe. Hope your family like it, let me know.
The onions are lovely baked on their own, or you can season with herbs or spices, or just crumble cheese over them when they're done. Experiment!
And Margate? I'd go there again, it's a nice place. Maybe I wouldn't go on a rainy, blustery (well, gale force) grey Sunday again, but on the upside we had the beach to ourselves!
