Caramelized Onions for the Grill or Oven

“These made be made on the grill or in the oven, great to take camping as you can prepare the foil packages ahead of time then just stick on the grill, they are great on top of burgers, steaks and even fish -- one onion for each packet but of coarse you may make as many packets as desired! --- see bottom of recipe for oven cooking :)”

  1. Set outdoor grill to medium.

  3. Dot the top of the wedges with butter cubes, then sprinkle with bouillon powder, garlic powder, salt and ground black pepper.
  4. Fold the foil square into a packet.
