“We love onions of any kind and I've tried quite a few recipes for baked Vidalias. This recipe combines the best of the best and I really wished that I'd made a double batch so we could have had seconds.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 vidalia onions (or other sweet onion)
  • 1 teaspoon beef base
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons parmesan cheese


  1. Peel onions. Cut an X in the top about 1/3 of the way down through the onion.
  2. Set each onion on a large square of aluminum foil.
  3. Top each onion with 1/4 tsp beef soup base, 1/2 tsp butter, and 1 tbs Parmesan (or more if the onions are especially large).
  4. Wrap in the foil and cook over indirect heat in a medium grill with the lid down (goes well with ribs), OR in a 350F oven for 45-60 minutes or until fully cooked and soft.
  5. Serve in the foil. Best to provide some crusty bread to sop up the delicious juice.
