Really nice & simple grilled onions to go with any outdoor grilling (hamburgers, steaks, tenderloin, etc.)

Cook time:


Cost per recipe $0.99 view details
  • Maui Sweet Onions (1 good size onion will be good for 2-3 people...or if using for sandwiches, 1 onion for ~4 ppl). Any onion can be grilled, but Maui Sweet Onions are the best!
  • Butter (or Olive Oil)
  • Salt (or favorite season salt)


  1. Remove outer peel of onion (and cut off ends).
  2. Cut onion cross-sectionally into 1/2" to 3/4" slices.
  3. Stick with 2-3 toothpicks from outer shell into middle (doesn't need to be all the way through, this just helps hold the onion together on the grill)
  4. Brush on some melted butter and place over low-med heat (watch as excess butter/oil could cause flame-ups).
  5. Lightly season/salt.
  6. Grill ~10 minutes per side (depending on thickness of slices).
  7. Rebrush with butter & season after turning.
  8. Remove toothpicks and serve along side other meats (or use in pieces for sandwiches, etc.)
  9. Variation: Add some crumbled Asadero or Fresca (or feta, blue, etc.) cheese to melt on during the last 5 minutes (with cover down)

    Bingo - this was great. Super simple to make - all in how good a grill man you are. Served along side grilled chicken and some asparagus spears.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
