When visiting my sister-in-law’s camper at Pymatuning Lake, she made this recipe for us. It was absolutely delicious.
One Vadalia or other large sweet onion per person
1 beef bullion cube per person
Butter, melted or not
Cooking : Peel the outer layers of onion skin off the onion. Core the top of the onion to make a deep well.
Put the onion on a large piece of buttered foil and draw up the sides of the foil around the onion. Place the bullion cube in the onion and fill the well with butter.
Twist the foil over the top of the onion so the whole thing looks like a Hershey’s Kiss.
Throw this on the coals of a campfire or put on a grill. Make sure the twist is up. Let this cook slowly for a long time. How long? It kind of depends on the size of the onion, etc. You might figure an hour or so. If you squeeze the onion with tongs and it is soft, you are good to go. The outer part of the onion might look blackened, but the inside will be soft and tasty.
Eating: Put the packet in a bowl so you don’t lose all the juices. If you feel decadent, throw a handful of shredded Swiss cheese on top of the creation after you open the foil. Enjoy!!!!
