Today I have another camping recipe for you. This one won the Blue Ribbon from everyone who went camping with us a few weeks ago. Even my boys, ages 5 and 3, came back for seconds and they typically don’t like onions! The onion was almost like a campfire french onion soup.
To make one over the campfire you need a piece of foil, an onion, butter and a chicken bouillon cube or granules. I used the Goya brand chicken bouillon granule packet to make things easier on myself (after all cooking outdoors is not a walk in the park).
For each onion cut a piece of foil big enough to wrap the onion up in. Peel and cut the onion in half. Take out a few of the middle layers and fill it with a spoonful of butter. Put the onion back together. The butter will help hold the two halves together. Sprinkle chicken bouillon granules over the top and wrap the foil up over it.
If you use a bouillon cube crush it up and sprinkle over the top.
Place your onion in the campfire and cook until it is fork tender. I placed ours on the outside of the fire where it was still hot but not directly on a flame because I didn’t want I to burn on the outside and still be raw in the middle. Cooking over a campfire is tricky business.
On a side note these would be just as good cooked on a grill!Enjoy,
