Grilled Sweet Onions

 Grilled Sweet Onions
“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!
4 ServingsPrep: 15 min. Grill: 35 min.


  • 4 large sweet onions
  • 4 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 teaspoons white wine or beef broth, optional


  • With a sharp knife, carefully remove a 1-in. core from the center of
  • each onion. Cut each onion into four wedges to within 1/2 in. of
  • root end.
  • Place each onion on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12
  • in. square). Place bouillon in the centers of onions; top with
  • butter, thyme, salt and pepper. Drizzle with wine if desired. Fold
  • foil around onions and seal tightly.
  • Prepare grill for indirect heat. Grill onions, covered, over indirect
  • medium heat for 35-40 minutes or until tender. Open foil carefully
  • to allow steam to escape. Yield: 4 servings.
