Stuffed Onions on the Grill

Wednesday, July 21, 2010 @ 06:07 PM

Onions can be stuffed just like a pepper. These fancy containers can be cooked in and eaten as well. Saves on clean up. Better yet, let’s cook them on the grill.

Start with 6 large onions

2 lbs meatloaf mix (substitute with ground beef or turkey if you prefer)

1 egg

1 green pepper, chopped well

1\2 cup- 2\3 cup seasoned bread crumbs

1 tsp salt

1 1\4 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (or make your own)

Peel & cut the onions in half, crosswise. Remove the centers, leaving 2 or 3 layers of onion. Set aside.

Chop up the centers. Combine the chopped onion, with the rest of the ingredients, but only half of the BBQ sauce. Mix well. Make 6 meat balls.

Fit the meatballs into 6 of the onion halves and afix the other half onion on top.

Set up your  Brinkmann charcoal grill. When the coals are ready, wrap the onions in foil and cook over hot coals for 30 mins. After this time, carefully open the foil, and baste the onions with the remaining BBQ sauce. Grill for another 25-30 mins or until the meat is done and the onions are tender. Serve immediately.
