Johnson Special Onions

John, my father-in-law, made these amazing onions
on the grill a couple weeks ago. I promise you, I could 
have ate the entire bowl. They were flavorful and tender.
My mouth is watering just thinking about them.

Enter the hubby.

Isn't he hot? Any man cooking is hot to me - LOL!

 Johnny made my heart sing last night
when he made these onions for dinner. 
I could have just ate them but I would have
missed the great tenderloin.

Johnny baked his in the oven because we 
currently don't own a grill. Believe me, I will be
rectifying that situation soon. They turned out just as good
in the oven.

The other difference between John's and Johnny's
is that Johnny had to use soy sauce on one of the onions.
We ran out of worcestershire sauce. Oopies!
However, it turned out fine.
I would suggest trying it both ways and seeing which
one you and your family like best.

I am not taking credit for this recipe in any way.
I am sure there is an original recipe for this out there somewhere.
I am sharing the way John and Johnny made their onions.
Thus, the name of "Johnson Special Onions."

Johnson Special Onions

2 vivaldi onions (use more for bigger crowds)
Worcestershire sauce or Soy Sauce (your preference)
Garlic powder
Aluminum foil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. If using a grill, you want the
grill around 350-400 degrees.

Remove the skin from the onion and cut the onion
into wedges. DO NOT cut all the way through.

Place onion a piece of aluminum foil. Make sure it is big
enough that it will cover your onion.

Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce to 
the onion. There is no real measurement here. A couple good
shakes of each will do. ALSO, if you are using soy sauce instead,
I would cut back on the salt.

Now add a generous amount of butter to the top.

Wrap the foil up and around the onion.

Bake or grill for approximately 30-40 minutes.

Remove from foil and serve.

This is a pictute of one of them.
Look at this goodness!! They just melt in your mouth.

Hope you enjoy!

Love to you all from the
Busy Cookin' WV Momma!
