For the devoted campers...you can also do this on the grill, in your fireplace or in the oven.
- 1 lb extra lean ground beef
- 2 large egg whites
- 1⁄4 cup tomato sauce
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 6 medium-size onions
- Cut 6 12X14 inch rectangles of heavy aluminum foil and set aside.
- In a medium-size bowl, combine the ground beef, egg whites, tomato sauce, pepper, salt and dry mustard.
- Mix well and set aside Peel the onions and cut them in half horizontally.
- Remove the centers, leaving a 1/4 in shell.
- Finely chop the center from one of the onions and mix it into the meat mixture.
- Tightly wrap the 5 remaining onion centers and refrigerate for future use.
- Spoon the meat mixture into 6 of the onion halves, mounding it on top.
- Place the remaining onion halves on top of the filled halves and press together.
- Place one filled onion on top of each piece of foil.
- Bring the ends of the foil up over the onion and flold down tightly in small folds.
- Flatten the ends and roll them tightly around the onion.
- Cook the stuffed onions on coals, turning once, until they are soft to the touch, 14-20 minutes on each side.

I made this to put in the oven and halved the recipe for just 2 people. I felt as the meat mixture was a bit to wet so I added some Garlic and Herb breadcrumbs to absorb the wetness. I also added about some chopped bell pepper to had more flavor and some chopped onion too in the meat mixuture. Baked the onions for a hour and 15 minutes just to make sure the meat was done. Turned out good, and it would be a great camping recipe :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I cut this recipe down to serve one and tucked the package into the oven while preparing dinner for my DD and her family. When SIL asked what smelled so good I offered him my onion. I know it must have been delicious 'cause it disappeared so fast. He said it was great, make it again and don't change a thing. I will make this again soon. Thanks Tish.
I prepared this in the oven on a cold night and downsized the recipe for just my husband and myself. Instead of the pepper and salt, I used Emeril's seasoning and sweet yellow onions. The meatloaves were good, and the onions became even sweeter when baked. This would be a good camping recipe.
