I substituted chicken bouillon for the beef bouillon once and liked the change of flavor.



Preheat grill to medium heat. If not using non stick foil, lightly grease the grill.

Peel each onion, slice off the small top portion, core out the center about 2/3 of the way down towards the bottom of the onion, drop a beef bouillon in to the core of each onion, cover each bouillon cube with 1 tablespoon of butter and wrap each onion tightly with aluminum foil.

Cook on grill for 30 to 60 minutes, or to desired doneness. Be careful not to puncture the aluminum foil or the juices will drip out which could cause the onions to burn and will definitely reduce the final flavor.

Really good with barbecues. Every one I make them for comes back for more!


  • Fist size or larger white Onions (Vidalia onion or Texas Sweet onion)
  • aluminum foil
  • bacon strips
  • shredded cheese (Cheddar)
  • soft butter
  • cinnamon
  • garlic salt


Melt butter is a sauce pan, keep warm. Cut bacon strips in half.

Peel onions, cut top and bottom flat. Using a normal soup spoon, core the center out of the onion, leaving about 1/2 inch on the on the side and bottom.

Line inside of onion with bacon. lightly pack shredded cheese inside onion/bacon. Set on aluminum foil sheet.

Drizzle melted butter over cheese until it oozes over the sides. Sprinkle onion with cinnamon and garlic salt.


Wrap aluminum foil around onion so that it looks like Heresy's Chocolate Kiss. Place on grill away from direct heat. Periodically squeeze the onion. When soft all the way around, it is done.

Serve: Carefully unfold the aluminum foil flat. Cut onion into quarters. Enjoy!

Servings: 1 per onion

Walla Walla sweet onions are a delicious seasonal treat. We like to add them to our BBQ's. These go great with steak, chicken, salad or on its own. Vidalia onions are also good prepared this way, but nothing beats Walla Walla.
