Camping? This is a big hit around the campfire when you want a little snack! I can never make enough. And it is very easy to make when you have no 'kitchen space.'

  1. Peel onions, and cut each one into quarters, keeping onion together. Place one tablespoon of butter and one whole clove of garlic into the center of each one. Double wrap each onion in aluminum foil and drop into the hot coals of your campfire.
  2. Cook for 30 to 40 minutes. Carefully remove them from the coals and tear them open. Season with salt to taste, and eat.

Totally awsome with garlic,I have tried this recipe many times, always a great item. Another way is to core the top of onion and put a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of brown sugar instead of garlic, comes out carmalized. Vidalia Onions are a gift from God!!! (P.S. works in microwave[wrap in paper towels] also for inside camping)


This was AWESOME and we did it on the grill instead of campfire. It tastes like french onion soup on your plate! ... went very nicely with the steaks we grilled.

We do this all the time on our gas grill. I use heavy duty foil, put them on the bottom for about 10 minutes move them to the top and cook for about 20 minutes more...they are so-o-o good!
