“One night my neighbor was placing on the grill what appeared to look like a giant Hershey kiss. When he gave me the recipe and I tried it, I was hooked. This is the easiest and best tasting way to prepare a whole sweet onion on the grill. He just used the bouillon cube but I made a few additions which really enhances the flavor. You can substitute a packet of powdered beef bouillon if you like.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the onion and cut off both ends.
  2. With a knife or an apple corer hollow out the center of the onion about 1/2 way through.
  3. Place the bouillon cube or granules and the garlic clove in the hole. Press in enough cheese to fill the hole to the top.
  4. Place the onion on a large sheet of heavy duty foil and gather. It will resemble a "giant Hershey Kiss"
  5. Turn grill to med. high and place onion on grill. I use indirect heat side so the onion doesn't burn. You can also use the top shelf. Close the lid (if it pushes down top of foil, that's ok)
  6. Grill for 1 hour or till tender.
