    OMG these are so good. Sweet and tangy all in one. Goes great with grilled steak and crisp French bread. Cook time does not include the time for marinading. Adapted for TOH

      Oh these treats are so addicting! We cut the onion into eight sections and cooked them in the oven (in a foil lined pan for easy clean up) at 350F for 40 minutes. We also cut them leaving the root intact to help hold them together. No basting, we used all the sauce for cooking then drizzled that over tops to serve. This is an exceptionally wonderful recipe. Thanks for posting! :)

      We really loved the concept of this dish. The bacon with the balsamic vinegar was just great. The red onions seamed to be overpowering for us. The flavor of the onion was very dominate. I would use walla walla sweet onions next time. This is a wonderful BBQ grill recipe. Thanks for posting. :)
