BBQ Onion Bombs


1 lb ground beef

2 yellow onions

1 pack bacon

1/4 c each chopped parsley, chopped mushrooms and diced onion

1 tbsp spice ketchup

1 tsp each soy and worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp each brown sugar and Prime rib rub

1/4 c Panko bread crumbs


Prepare the shell

First you need to cut the top and bottom off the onion before chopping it in half. Peel off the outer papery layers and put to one side some of the chunky halves.

Make the Mince

Using your hands, mix the ground beef with chopped up onion, mushroom, parsley and spices & breadcrumbs together in a large bowl.

Mold the meat into balls around the size of the onion shells. Then place the onion halves round the balls to form a bomb.

Wrap 2 or three slices of bacon round the onion balls. If necessary use a tooth pick or two to hold it all in place. Next place the balls on a baking tray and pop into the oven.

After an hour, cover them with BBQ sauce and let them caramelize.
