Buttery Grilled Onions

Cooking on the grill is a year-round treat in the South. The grill is great 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.


6 servings


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


Carefully remove a 1 x 1-inch 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 to 40 minutes or until tender. Carefully unwrap foil to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle onions with Parmesan cheese.
