These stuffed onions look amazing right?? I used Vidalia onions who generously sponsored this post to make these mozzarella stuffed bacon wrapped onions in the oven. You could easily throw them on the barbecue too!  (originally published 4/17, affiliate links present)

Stuffed onions

  • They provide the perfect “bowl” to fill with your favorite things. Ours being bacon and cheese.
  • Baked is wonderful however during the Summertime you can use this recipe on the grill too!
  • Instead of using a cookie sheet you can wrap each one in aluminum foil and put them on your barbecue!

Take them camping too and throw them on the campfire for an amazing meal or side dish too.

They could even be stuffed with a meatloaf instead of cheese. 😉 Vidalia onions are a seasonal treat only available in the Spring and Summer months.

  • So right now is the best time to pick up a few and give these mozzarella stuffed bacon wrapped onions a try.

The first time I made them I had one myself for lunch.

I couldn’t wait to share what I had made with my husband. But, surprisingly enough when my kids came home they loved them too!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Cut about 1/4 of the top of your onion off. 
  • Slightly cut the other end just to remove the onion skin, making sure it sits flat and you don’t cut a hole in the bottom. 
  • Remove just the first outside layer of your Vidalia onions. 
  • Use a knife to cut the middle out of your onions, then use a spoon to core out a bit more, enough for some cheese and a bit of bacon to fit inside. 
  • Lay 2 pcs. of bacon down in an X form. 
  • Put the onion in the middle of the X and pull the ends up and into the hole at the top of your onion. Push it down inside so it is tight. 
  • Once all of your onions are prepared this way put them on a cookie sheet with aluminum foil on it, with a cooling rack on top of that so any liquid can drip away from the onions (there won’t be that much). 
  • Put in oven set to 350 degrees, on a rack that has been moved to the bottom of the oven (or close to it). 
  • Bake for 30 minutes. 
  • Mix together your 2 cheeses. 
  • After 30 minutes take your onions out and make a ball out of your cheese mixture, enough to fit into the holes. 
  • Sprinkle with a bit of oregano, salt, and pepper and drizzle with olive oil making sure oil gets on the outside of onion. 
  • Put cheese stuffed onions back into the oven for 20-25 more minutes or until the top of the cheese is lightly brown and bacon is crisp.

This sounds great! Want to try it today, but have ricotta on hand rather than cream cheese. Do you think that will work?

It will definitely have a different taste but suppose you could.

This looks really good but I don't think if it's over 20 carbs that it's keto friendly. And if I made it I'd want a whole onion lol ... looks delicious!
