Stuffed Onions

So we travel a lot, occasionally camp, and love to barbecue especially during the summertime!

  • Anything I can do to make individual servings I will do. It is just fun for the kids and everyone gets their own little meal all wrapped up in tinfoil.

You can just make muffin tin meatloaf, but I think we prefer them inside a vidalia or yellow onion.

Meatloaf with Onions

I started using onions as little “bowls” when I made these amazing mozzarella stuffed bacon wrapped onions and they were just so heavenly I thought I should use onions more often this way!

It is easy to create a bowl out of a large onion and they give off so much flavor into the dish that we love them. They are so inexpensive too which is great…you’ve just got to try these.

Baked Meatloaf Stuffed Onions

We have made these in the oven wrapped the same way and they come out about the same. Just adjust the timing according to how well done you like your meatloaf, but the recipe itself is super simple to make and full of flavor too.

I have used this quick meatloaf recipe for years and years and I just love it. It’s a throw together a little of this and a little of that but you just can’t go wrong with it.

If you love your Ninja Foodi meatloaf just use that and this technique for hollowing out the onion and making room for the beef.

Hollow out as much as you possibly can from the onion, that is the trick. That will make it as soft as possible when done.

  • Cut small slice off bottom of onions so they sit flat.
  • Cut 1/3 off top of onion so you can core out inside and make into a cup.
  • Remove outer layer of onions with skin, discard.
  • Use a knife to cut a bit of inside of each onion out being careful not to puncture bottom.
  • Use a spoon to scrape as much of the inside of each onion out so it makes a cup, but make sure the bottom is in tact free from holes.
  • Mix all other meatloaf ingredients together well and form into balls.
  • Fill onion holes with meatloaf mixture.
  • Get a piece of tinfoil big enough for 1 meatloaf filled onion. Put in middle.
  • Pour olive oil on top and on outside of onion, sprinkle a bit of basil or oregano if desired.
  • Bring sides up and close tinfoil.
  • Put all wrapped and prepared onions on the grill (close), or on a cookie sheet and in the oven at 300 degrees for about 30 minutes or until meatloaf is as done as you’d like it to be.
