Peel the onions of their outer sections and roots, then scoop out the inner core to leave a hole. Blanch in lightly salted water, just to soften them a little. Prepare the filling by placing the breadcrumbs in a food processor, along with the gorgonzola, walnuts and a little of the onion hearts, some salt and pepper. Put a knob of butter in each onion then fill with the stuffing and decorate with half a walnut kernel placed on each onion. Bake at 180°C for 20 mins and then finish off with 5 mins under the grill.
