Do not turn your oven on until the rice is done. Put the water on for the rice and onions before you do anything. It will boil while you prepare the other ingredients. The onions take the longest.. 10 mins to boil the water, 15 mins to boil, 5 mins to cool down, 5-10 mins to core them.
Serving size varies GREATLY on these. It all depends on how many layers of the onion you core out. You will need much more stuffing than what is listed for the 6 serving size (display servings). Double the recipe and you should be good for 3-4 people (if they eat the whole onion too), anything left over.. put in the freezer and you can stuff peppers with it one night. The display servings fed only me and my 120 lbs girlfriend. Do not waste the butter on the outside of the onion. If you have more than one layer, which you probably will, basting the outside won't matter as it will all end up in the bottom of the pan. Mix it in with the stuffing or pour it on the stuffing while in the onion. I ended up eating the inside with the layer that it cooked in so the outside layer with all the butter went to waste. Oh yeah, the onions were still very raw. May want to saute the shells a little before stuffing (not sure if this is even possible ;p).
Taste: Sub standard. My girlfriend said it tasted a little like Jambalaya. They were definately lacking something. Try to spice it up or throw a good cheese into them. Maybe a little cayenne or a good gouda.
