Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill. Peel onions and cut through the root end into quarters. Toss with oil. Grill, cut-side down, until well-browned and tender, about 5 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper.



DIY grill basket: It's best to use a grill basket when grilling small ingredients so they don't fall into the fire. If you don't have one, fold a 24-inch-long piece of heavy-duty foil in half and crimp up the edges to create a lip; this “basket” will prevent the food from sliding off the grates.
