"I went ahead and put the onions directly on the grill - I sliced them on the thick side so I wouldn't have to hover too much. I also sliced a head of garlic and threw it on as well and it was deliciou..." See mores. I started with olive oil and put a bit of butter on before serving."
"I cut my sweet onions in half, peeled them, cut a piece off the bottom so they would sit flat & then cut an X in them, not quite cutting them through. Placed them on the foil, dotted them w/ butter &..." See more sprinkled them w/ parmesan cheese & salt & pepper.

These were a great side for Grilled Fusion Pork Chops (from this site)...thanks for the recipe!"
"This is a great complement to any meal on the grill! I tend to use olive oil to lighten it up, sprinkle with salt and fresh pepper, all in a simple foil packet. TIP: Put the packet on the grill whe..." See moren you light it. It will have a good head start from the rest of your meal, which it needs since they take longer to cook through and caramelize!"
