grilled bloomin' onion

Grilled Sweet Onion Bloom

1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
4 slices Swiss cheese
¼ cup bread crumbs
¼ cup butter
2 larger Vidalia onions
pepper to taste
salt to taste

This is how we do from the hood to the woods:
Cut onion in half across the middle. Then cut crosswise without slicing through the sides of bottom of onion. Place onion halves sliced side up on aluminum foil and evenly distribute Old World Olive oil butter, bread crumbs and parsley in the onion cups. Top with and salt and pepper. Fold aluminum foil around onion until all ends meet to make a tight seal.  Jop will love this.
Place onion packet on covered grill over indirect heat or in your smoker, (I do it on my Louisiana Grill),  for 20 minutes, rotating occasionally. Now open it up and place the onion directly on the rack and place the cheese on it and maybe a little touch of Progresso Bread crumbs. I like the seasoned types. Onion should be soft and “melted” with the bottom caramelized when done.
Serve as a side dish with grilled steak, brats, etc..
