Based on a 2,000 calorie diet


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil grate.
  2. Peel each onion, and core out the center. Drop a beef bouillon in the core of each onion, and cover the bouillon with 1 tablespoon of butter. Wrap tightly with aluminum foil.
  3. Cook on grill for 30 to 60 minutes, or to desired doneness. Be careful not to puncture the aluminum foil, or the juices will drip out, and the onion will burn.

I do one like this with an exception - since my husband and I are on Weight Watchers, I substitute balsamic vinegar for the butter. Makes a heavenly match with the onion and the bouillon! I also usually use a teaspoon of granulated bouillon instead of the cube. Husband LOVES this one!


Wow!! I didn't have a vidalia or even better a Texas 1015 onion on hand, so I just used a generic yellow onion. I followed the advice of another poster and used good balsamic vinegar instead of butter because we were going to have mushrooms sauted in butter w/ our grilled ribeyes. I also added minced garlic w/ the beef cube because nothing is done w/o garlic! Ha! Ha! I double foiled it so no juice would leak. It was heavenly!!! Thanks for the recipe.


This was very good. I did add 2 whole cloves of garlic (that I crushed). I liked the addition of the beef bullion. I don't think it tasted like French Onion Soup (like others mentioned), but it was delicious. Had a guest and they said it was good. Thanks for the post.
