Beef-Stuffed Onions

I learned to cook at an early age. Instead of relying on recipes, most of my dishes come about from trial and error, including this skillet. We always make this when we go camping.—Clara Honeyager, Mukwonago, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Cook: 10 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 4 large sweet onions
  • 1/2 pound ground beef, cooked and drained
  • 1/4 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup condensed nacho cheese soup, undiluted
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
  • 1/4 cup hot water


  • Cut tops off onions and peel them. Scoop out centers to within 1/4 in. of edge; set shells aside. Chop the removed onion; set aside 1/4 cup (refrigerate remaining onion for another use).
  • In a bowl, combine the beef, bread crumbs, soup, green pepper, oregano, salt, pepper and chopped onion; mix well. Stuff the onions. Arrange in a 9-in. microwave-safe pie plate. In a small bowl, dissolve bouillon in water. Pour over onions.
Editor's Note: When preparing Beef-Stuffed Onions, use a grapefruit spoon or melon baller to scoop out the centers of onions with ease.

    Look Tanamakoa, I CAN read & I had the same question as love2clog. This recipe leaves one to figure it out yourself. And, had Tast of Home not added the footnote that it was tested in an 1100 watt microwave, how else would one know what was intended. I truly hate it when people omit all the necessary directions - which was done here. YES, I HAVE BEEN A COOK FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. Now this recipe sounds delicious and I will prepare it.

    People should learn to read. It clearly states both prep and cook time and also says that it was tested in a 1100 W micowave

    I am assuming this should be cooked after pouring the mixture over the onions, but you left off how long, what method (microwave or regular oven) and what temperature!
