By far one of my favorite summer-time treats is grilled onions. There are so many varieties and they make everything taste better (in my humble opinion). Ever try grilled scallions? They are AMAZING! I want them now just talking about them.
This recipe is not scallion based sadly, but it does include one of my favorite summer-time onions. The sweet Vidalia. If you have never had one stop reading and go out and buy one this instant. They are so very good. Once you try them you won’t stop eating them. Trust me.
And if you’re planning a Western Style Party, these will fit right in.
Frenched Sweet Onions on the Grill
(Serves as many people as you have onions.)
- Vidalia onions
- Beef Bouillon
- Garlic, minced
This couldn’t be easier.
Take a vidalia sweet onion and remove the top and the bottom and peel it.
Place it in the middle of a sheet of foil, big enough to wrap the onion completely.
On the top with a spoon, hollow out a hole about an inch around by an inch deep.
Slice the onion in quarters but stop an inch from the bottom. Gently separate the layers of the onion.
On top of the hole place:
1 teaspoon beef bouillon
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon minced garlic
Wrap in two layers of foil and throw on coal or top of a grill grate (400 degree oven works fine too). Coals will take about 20 minutes and grill/oven will be closer to an hour. This is all dependant upon size of the onion. To test for doneness just squeeze the foil and if the onion gives you are good and if it is still firm wait another 5-10 minutes before trying again.
Open up the foil and eat.
Protip: after removing it, open the foil, throw some croutons on top of the onion, slice of swiss cheese, and put it back on your heat source with the foil open until the cheese has melted.
