Baked Onion in the Hole (Jamie Oliver Recipe)

This is a gorgeous vegetarian recipe from the Save with Jamie cookbook. Its really easy and cheap to make and is a great alternative to sausages if you’re all out! Use the recipe from the giant Yorkshire pudding recipe featured and simply add a whole red onion with some olive oil and thyme and rosemary and bake for around 20-30 minutes and enjoy!

  1. Roll the tortillas (1 per person) into a cigar like shape and snip with scissors into a frying pan with a little oil to fry until golden brown. Remove once coloured.
  2. Fry the onion in olive oil and add the chilli flakes and chopped tomatoes (I use tinned)
  3. Throw in the crispy tortilla bits and add the eggs (beaten already) into the pan and take off the heat still stirring until you have the consistency you want.
  4. Add some chopped chives and seasoning and enjoy!


Apologies for the late post – the last two months have been a bit crazy with getting married! My wedding pressie from my other half was incredible though – my very own wooden chopping board/display board engraved with Holly Rachel Bakes! We also got a proper camera for taking ultra professional looking photos of my bakes 🙂 So here is my first bake since becoming Mrs Parry – I hope you enjoy!
