Blue Cheese Vidalia Onions


2 large Vidalia onions or other sweet onions, cut into -inch slices
1 tablespoon butter
4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (1 cup)
of an 8-ounce package cream cheese, cut up
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
teaspoon ground black pepper
teaspoon dried dill weed
Grilled burgers topped with bacon or grilled steaks


Serves: 8


Fold a 36 x 18 inch piece of heavy foil in half to make an 18 inch square. Place onion slices in centre of foil. Dot with butter. Bring up opposite edges of the foil; seal with a double fold. Seal remaining edges with double folds to completely enclose the onions, leaving space for steam to build.

For a charcoal grill, place the packet on rack of covered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 25 to 30 minutes or until onions are just tender; turn packet once or twice during cooking. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Grill.)

In a large bowl combine crumbled blue cheese, cream cheese, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and dill weed. Use a slotted spoon to add onions to the cheese mixture; toss to coat.

Serve on grilled burgers topped with bacon or with grilled steaks.
