Buttery Grilled Onions Recipe

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. YIELD:6 servings


  • 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


  • 1. Carefully remove a 1-in. x 1-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).
  • 2. Combine the butter, bouillon, garlic powder and pepper; spoon into onions. Sprinkle with sherry if desired. Fold foil around onions and seal tightly.
  • 3. 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. Yield: 6 servings.
