OMW, have you tried this dish? I made it last night and never would have thought that onions could be so delicious! I removed the foil after about 12mins and the onions became all glazed from the honey and slightly caramelised on the edges. They had a little bite from the ground mustard and the paprika is just a magical addition both for the flavor and color. 5 stars from me!
