MarkNJayde's Grilled Onions

Submitted by: JAYDECOOK

Introduction

These are great for many different applications. We make a bunch and then use them all week in place of raw onions. Since they are grilled with just a little EVOO they are a much healthier alternative to caramelized onions if a recipe calls for that try these instead.

Ingredients

    1 medium walla walla sweet onion, cut into small wedges
    1 tsp EVOO
    1/4 tsp kosher salt
    1/2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper

Directions

1. Heat gas or charcoal grill to medium.

2. Peel onion.

3. Cut into small wedges and place on skewers. If you are using bamboo skewers remember to soak them for 30 minutes before hand.*

4. Brush with EVOO and sprinkle on seasonings.

5. Place on grill over indirect heat so they don't burn.

6. Cook turning frequently for 10-20 minutes depending on the grill temperature and how large you cut the wedges.

7. Remove from skewers and enjoy. If not using immediately allow to cool then place in reusable storage device or even just a baggie. They last in the fridge for up to one week.

Makes 4 servings.

* You can also skip the skewers all together if you have a vegetable grill basket just spray it with a small amount of Pam first. The onions won't get as charred or crispy but are still very good.
