These onions had a beautiful BBQ flavor. I did find most of the liquid drained out when I flipped the packet in the oven. I had to put them in for an extra 15 minutes, as they were still crunchy when I first opened the packet. I couldn't find the Lipton Savory Herb and Garlic soup mix, so I substituted Recipe #102041. I omitted the salt and mixed 2Tbsp of the herb mixture with 2 Tbsp of chicken bouillon granules. I look forward to making these again, my whole kitchen smelled wonderful.

I made a batch of your relish yesterday to serve with hamburgers. I reduced the onion quantity to 2 (used Texas 1015’s) but when slicing them, not much juice was happening so I left the other ingredients as written. Of course, I had to play, but just a little - I deseeded & chopped a medium-sized jalapeno and mixed it in to satisfy our need for heat. To give the relish a smoky flavor, I also added ½ tsp of smoked paprika. Being a lazy cook, I chose the oven option. I fashioned a baking bag from 2 pieces of heavy-duty foil. Some things I learned - leave a vent hole in your foil bag. After 20 minutes, I opened the oven to turn them and was presented with a shiny aluminum balloon. Lesson #2 – put the bag on a baking sheet. After the balloon episode, I loosened a corner to allow steam to escape. This also allowed some juice to escape; hmm ... guess I didn’t need that paprika after all. When the smoke detectors were silenced and I had aired out the house, we enjoyed the smoky-oven-onion-relish atop Recipe #192534 (which I pan fried – lazy, remember?). The flavor was wonderful, albeit a little salty, but a terrific change from our usual humdrum burgers! Thanks for posting this, MP!
