“These onions are so delicious, we prepare them all year long—on the grill in summer, or in an oven preheated to 350° for the same amount of time in winter. A small salad, a slice of bread…and you've got a great light meal.” This recipe from Mary Bilke of Eagle River, Wisconsin, is sure to become a favorite!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 4, 2011

I have made these twice now. The first time they were too salty, so I cut back on the bouillon granules and no salt and they were GREAT!

MY REVIEW

Maybe I didn't grill these long enough, but they just weren't that good.
