Buttery Grilled Onions

Cooking on the grill is a year-round treat in the South. We use our grill for side dishes, like these onions, in addition to meats. This recipe usually doesn’t require a trip to the grocery store, and you can prepare the onions ahead of time.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Grill: 30 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 medium onions, peeled
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 6 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 6 teaspoons sherry, optional
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • Carefully remove a 1x1-in. core from the center of each onion (save removed onion for another use). Place each onion on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square).
  • Combine the butter, bouillon, garlic powder and pepper; spoon into onions. Sprinkle with sherry if desired. Fold foil around onions and seal tightly.
  • Grill, covered, over medium heat for 30-40 minutes or until tender. Carefully unwrap foil to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle onions with Parmesan cheese.
