More of a method than a recipe, these onions are a snap to make. If you like onions, you will LOVE this! I made them to go on our hamburgers but they would also be great with any other grilled meats or tossed into a pasta salad.
The basic yellow cooking onion is what I use for this recipe but white or red would be fine as well. Be sure you are buying the seasoning salt without MSG. Regular salt could be used if you prefer but the flavour won’t be quite the same.
I love this with butter but oil would work well too. I have even made this with one of those soft healthier margarines – a friend I was cooking for preferred this margarine – and the results were good.
Make sure to seal the foil well, folding in the three sides at least twice and pressing the foil to seal. When opening, be very careful of steam. You could just cut a large X in the top and pull back the foil to serve.
It just occurred to me as I was working on this post that a splash of balsamic would be good as would a sprinkling of herbs. The possibilities are endless. I’ll let you know when I try some different combinations!!
