1- with a sharp knife slice 1/2 inch off top of onion, peel outside layer off and discard. Cut onion into 16ths stopping 1/2 inch from root end
2- place each onion in heavy duty foil (about 12 inch square) fold foil around onions and seal tightly, place in uncovered baking dish. Bake 425 for 20 minutes
3- in a small bowl combine butter and mustard. Open foil, fold foil into a bowl around onions. brush butter mixture over onions, sprinkle with bread crumbs, salt, and pepper
