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

Directions:

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
