Holiday dinners call for stepped-up sides like this one. You start with sweet yellow onions, hollowed out and baked in a roasting pan with stock until browned and tender. Meanwhile, make a stuffing of salt pork or bacon, a bit of minced jalapeño, toasted pecans, and crumbled cornbread. Stuff the roasted onions and bake until the filling is heated through. Be sure you buy large onions of a consistent size, and don’t forget to make a batch of our Basic Skillet Cornbread up to two days before you begin.
