Grilled Onions and Potatoes

Rating: 4.52 stars
My family loves these tasty potatoes. There are never leftovers. Once the potatoes are all tucked in their foil packets, they can wait overnight to be grilled the next day. Great for camping. Check foil packets at 15 and 30 minutes to ensure they are not burning. May require a few more minutes to ensure all is cooked through.

Midwest Salisbury Steak

Rating: 4.74 stars
I was tired of boring, tasteless Salisbury steak recipes, so I created this one myself. Use good ground sirloin, and it'll tastes wonderful and you won't have any grease to drain from the patties once they've browned. Serve over mashed potatoes, egg noodles, or rice. Simply delightful!

French Onion Soup Gratinee

About as good as it gets! This is the version of French Onion Soup that people seek when they go to restaurants. I have been making it for 30 years and it never fails to please. It makes an exquisite presentation, too!

Caramelized Onions on the Grill

Rating: 4.65 stars
These are absolutely melt in your mouth delicious! You can make them on the grill or in the oven. Even friends of ours that don't care for onions loved these! I would recommend that you use 1 large onion for every 2 people. Some people want one whole onion to themselves so you might want to make some extra! They are also good heated up the next day but we rarely have any extra!

Grilled Sweet Onions

This is my absolute favorite easy summer recipe my aunt recently shared with me - it tastes like you're biting into French onion soup! It became my favorite after only one taste. If you're having a barbecue, it's easy to make a lot of these in no time at all.
