A throwback to our very first campfire recipes article. This is such a great recipe I wanted to share it again in time for summer camping!

There are a ton of variations on this recipe with fillings and finishes. The filling is far less important than the concept of this recipe. Make your own version of a meatball, use more sausage, no sausage, make them hot, chicken, impossible meat whatever you desire.

Onion Bombs Ingredients (makes 5-6 bombs)
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound sausage
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 Tb Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 C fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/2 C freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • Tomato sauce. ketchup, Sriracha whatever condiment floats your boat. Heck fry up an egg

1.  Cut both ends off the onions, set them on one cut end, then cut in half.  Peel the onion and separate into matching pieces. You can see what this should look like in the lead image.

2.  In a bowl, mix together all the remaining ingredients.  It is easiest to use your hands and only mix it just enough to blend everything. Fill both matching sides of the onion then press them together, wrap them twice in foil and set aside.

3.  To cook, place them in a large amount of very hot coals for 15-20 minutes, flip over and cook for another 15-20 minutes.  Total cooking time will depend on the size of your bombs and the hotness of your coals so check on them to be sure they are cooked all the way through.

4.  To serve, remove the foil and top with whatever makes your taste buds happy! I like hot sauce and even cheese.

For an extra bonus wrap them in bacon!
