Meatloaf In An Onion

An unusual way to serve meatloaf.


  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 6 large onions, peeled


Cut six 12 x 14 inch rectangles of heavy-duty foil; set aside. In a medium bowl, mix ground beef, egg, cracker crumbs, tomato sauce, pepper, salt, and dry mustard. Set aside.

Cut onions in half horizontally and remove centers, leaving 1/4 inch shell. Chop onion centers. Stir 2 Tbsp. onion into meat mixture. Spoon meat mixture into 6 onion halves, rounding on top. Place remaining onion halves on top of filled onion halves.


Place 1 filled onion on each piece of foil. Bring ends of foil up over onion. Fold foil down in small folds. Press sides of foil close to onion. Flatten ends and roll toward onion. Cook on coals 14-20 minutes on each side. Serves 6.
