These grilled Vidalia Onions are one of our most FAVORITE sides, and they are great in the heat of the summer, because they are made right on the grill with your main dish, and you don’t have to worry about heating up the house!
We had a cookout here for Memorial Day, like always. The last few years we have made kabobs. It’s a fun way to get a nice colorful meal, and it’s all right there. This year we made beef kabobs with mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers and onions and chicken kabobs marinated in Jamaican Jerk Wing Sauce, skewered with pineapple and peppers.
These onions are so easy and fun to make!
Simply peel the outer skin from a large Vidalia onion, trim off the top piece and the little fuzzies from the bottom, keeping onion in tact. Slice in 1/8s, almost to the bottom to “blossom” the onion.
Slice 1/2 stick of butter into pads, and place randomly between the folds of the onion.
Sprinkle with 1/2 package of onion soup mix, drizzle with a teaspoon or two of Worcestershire sauce if desired.
Wrap in a couple of sheets of heavy duty foil, like a big Hershey’s kiss!!
… and grill!
They take about 45 minutes grilled over medium heat.
Enjoy them alone, or on a burger, steak, brat, chicken… whatever your heart desires!

- 1/2 package dry onion soup mix
- 1/2 stick of butter, sliced into pads
- 1-2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce (optional)
Peel onion and cut off the stem from the bottom, leaving the onion intact. with your knife, slice onion from top almost to the bottom in 1/8s, again, leaving onion in tact.
"Blossom" the onion and place pads of butter between folds.
Sprinkle with dry soup mix.
Drizzle with Worcestershire sauce if desired. -- it's not necessary, but gives more of a rich flavor.
Wrap onion in a couple of sheets of heavy duty foil and twist at the top, will look like a giant Hershey's kiss!
