Yes, you can cook onions right on your barbecue! These skewered sweet onions slices are brushed with a mixture of butter, Dijon mustard, honey and Worcestershire sauce for extra flavour. Serve them alongside grilled meat or on top of a hamburger.

Yield: Serves 6.



  • 2 large sweet onions, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup liquid honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp savory, crumbled


  1. Preheat natural gas barbecue on medium heat for 10 - 15 minutes.
  2. Run 2 thin metal skewers parallel to each other through each onion slice, placing skewers about 1 inch apart. This will keep onion slices intact during grilling.
  3. Combine all remaining ingredients in a bowl. Brush some of the melted butter mixture over onions.
  4. Grill onions over medium heat on natural gas barbecue, basting with remaining melted butter mixture, until onions are tender and golden brown, about 7 - 10 minutes. Turn once during cooking.
