Stuffed Onions for the Grill

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Aroostook

You will love this with chicken or pork off the grill. This recipe may be started the day before and once the onions are grilled, cooled and stuffed, refrigerate and finish cooking when you grill the rest of the food.

I made a large quantity of these onions. I parboiled and scooped out the centres of the onions instead of serving them as slices. This is a easy dish to prepare. These were delicious and very impressive. They went down very well indeed. I served them with grilled chicken. As a side dish the will go with any main courses. Next time I cook this recipe, I will be serving it with a piece of roast beef. A good addition to the menu for Canada national day. Thank you.
