Grilled Sweet Onions

I have actually had this at her house and it is AMAZING!  I like onions, but I don’t LOVE onions.  This, I loved!

From Minnie:  This is a favorite easy summer recipe my mom recently shared with me – it tastes like you’re biting into French onion soup! It became one of our favorites after only one taste. Hubby grilled out this evening (Brined & BBQ’d Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, Grilled Parmesan Zucchini, and Grilled Yellow Squash Slices) and it was easy to make a couple of these in no time at all.  Everything from the grill was fantastic alongside Steamed Fresh Brussel Sprouts, cubed Cantaloupe, Sliced Fresh Tomatoes, and our large Green Salad.  A Gigantic feast but oh so Yummy!!!

Grilled Sweet Onions Recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

This is a favorite easy summer recipe my mom recently shared with me - it tastes like you're biting into French onion soup!


  • 2 whole sweet onions I used Vidalia®
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes
  • 2 teaspoons low calorie margarine divided
  • 2 12 x12-inch squares aluminum foil


    Preheat an outdoor grill to medium heat. Hubby used his gas grill, but any kind would work fine. (My mom actually uses a plastic container to cook hers in the microwave.)

    Peel brown outer layers from onions. Using a sharp knife, cut a cone-shaped core from the top of each onion, about 2/3 of the way into the vegetable. The core should be about 1 1/2 inches wide at the top. Insert a bouillon cube into the hollowed-out space in each onion.

    Top each with 1 teaspoon of margarine. Wrap each filled onion in a single sheet of aluminum foil, leaving a small vent at the top of each.

    Set the foil-wrapped onions on the preheated grill vent-sides up, and grill until onions are tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
