12 oz. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

For roasted onions: Peel and scoop out about half the center of each onion. Rub onions with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast covered in 350°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until light golden and semi-soft to the touch. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature.
For Gorgonzola stuffing: combine all ingredients except eggs. add enough eggs to make a moist stuffing. Refrigerate for 20 minutes to allow bread to absorb ingredients.
Fill roasted onions with stuffing and bake uncovered in a 350°F oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
