Grilled Sweet Onions

Next time you turn on the grill to make dinner consider grilling a whole sweet onion.  It’s super simple and makes a fantastic side to serve with steak.  It takes an hour to cook so get it going on the grill while you finish your prep work.  You’ll be glad you did!


  • Large, sweet onion
  • Bacon
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  1. Peel onions.
  2. Cut, not quite through, each onion making 8 sections.
  3. Cut 2 pieces of heavy duty foil (enough to wrap onion completely
  4. Place one onion in the middle of foil
  5. Season with salt & pepper to taste
  6. Crisscross 2 strips of bacon over onion, gently pushing down into the sliced areas.
  7. Pull up foil and seal at the top. There should be a little room for steam to build up inside.
  8. Cook on grill for 1 hour.
