I've made these for years I leave skin on make cuts almost to root sprinkle with parm chesse. Skins keep onion from burning when buired in coals and peel right off when cooked. Try different herbs over them also Read More

This recipe is very much like the one called 'Grilled Onions' on this site - they are both wonderful! I usually make them when I'm cooking corn on the grill. I always cut out a little notch of onion from the top and insert a beef bouillon cube. This combined with the butter gives it an almost French Onion soup flavor. We love it! Thanks so much for reminding me of a superb recipe! Read More

This is an awesome recipe! I've made it while camping and at home in the oven. The recipe is great as-is but even better if you add a beef boullion cube in the center along with a few drops of worcestershire. It tastes like french onion soup! Great served with steak. Read More

We think these are great and make them just about everytime we cook out. I use spray butter to cut the calories and also throw in a heaping teaspoon of minced garlic. Read More

This is very good to make when camping. It doesn't get soggy but is tender. I will definately use this in my campfire cooking lineup again and again. BTW it is so easy to make. Read More

These was very good and I plan to make them again and again. They were very decadent and the flavor was just perfect (although they needed additional salt at the table in spite of what I thought was plenty before cooking). I made them at home in the oven using a glass baking dish. I set the oven higher to 450 degrees and left the baking time the same. I also added a little olive oil before the butter. Often I've searched so hard for something different to serve as a vegetable and I've always overlooked the simple onion! Thank you Riverview5950 for sharing this recipe!:-) Read More

I love to cook over the campfire at our family place in the PA mountains and I am always looking for a new idea. This site has lots of good campfire goodies. I made the onion to put ontop of burgers and it was really good. It takes much longer over the fire than on a grill with a lid. I used beef bullion powder worchestershire and butter. Its a good make ahead item. I made it in the morning and kept cold till it was time for dinner cooking. I will make this again. Read More
