Grilled Onion Blossom

This is one of my favorite sides, especially in the summer time. They are very simple to make.

Take a good sized sweet onion, cut off the tips, and peel it but LEAVE IT WHOLE! Now, cut it into about 8 wedges, but not all the way through (just like an onion blossom, but not tiny petals).

Set your onion on two sheets of foil. Make sure the foil is long enough to wrap completely around the onion and leave a stem on the top. It'll make it easier to open later!

Before you wrap it up, put a small pat of butter and a splash of Dale's on your onion, then wrap it up really tightly and stick it on the grill.

Let it cook for at least an hour. You'll know it's done when you squeeze your little bundle with a pair of tongs and it gives easily.

Use a knife or pair of kitchen shears to cut off the stem and open the foil package. Enjoy your yummy onion with steak, chicken, burgers, or anything else! They are great warm and are ok room temperature. They don't make very good leftovers that I have found, but that's rarely a problem around here anyway!

I've seen a variation on these using A-1, but have never personally tried it. I'm also guessing it would work well in the oven, but also haven't tried that. If you do give it a try, let me know what you think!
