Absolutely Awesome Grilled Onions

Absolutely Awesome Grilled Onions is an awesome summer side with grilled meats or fish of any kind.


  • Very large onions - sweet or Maui variety
  • Brown sugar
  • Beef bouillon cubes or granules


  1. Slice onions in slices approximately 1/3 of an inch thick. Be careful to keep the onions together and not to separate the "rings."
  2. On a small square of aluminum foil, place onion slice, 1 heaping teaspoon of brown sugar, and 1 small beef bouillon cube. (If your cubes are larger, cut them in half). Fold the foil up tightly over the onion slice making sure to seal all of the edges . Throw them on your hot grill for approximately 20-30 minutes. The foil will puff up like Jiffy Pop! They should be cooked all of the way through, and have a wonderful caramelized appearance.

This recipe can also be done with smaller onions, just cut them in half, follow the same preparation and wrap them up like a Hershey's Kiss!
