6 large onions
½ cup soft butter
½ tsp SIDS CRAZY SALT, sprinkled
1 cup blue cheese, crumbled
8-10 slices of thick cut bacon
1 tsp New York Cut Pepper
1 tsp dried thyme
¼ cup olive oil


Preheat oven, or grill, to 200°C.
Place bacon on a baking tray, be sure to coat the pan with pan spray first so the bacon won’t stick.
Cook bacon to desired crispiness, saving the fat for later, remove from pan and cool.
Chop the bacon into pea sized pieces and put aside.
Preheat your grill to “HOT” 260-340°C.
Cut the ends off the onions, take note which end the roots came from - this will be your bottom.
Peel the onions - Do not to remove any excessive flesh.
With a grapefruit knife, apple corer or paring knife, scoop out the centre of the onion from the top, taking care to not go too deep or too close to the sides. If you pierce the bottom of the onion all of the goodness will dribble out! You want a perfect little onion “cup” to hold all the cheese and bacon.
Brush the outsides of the onions with olive oil and transfer them to your hot grill grates so that the onion cup is inverted onto the grates.
Give it about 4-5 minutes then turn the onions 90 degrees, grill an additional 4-5 minutes to give them nice grill marks.
Remove the onions from the grill. Take your grill down to “MEDIUM” 175-200°C.
While the onions are cooling, go ahead and combine your soft butter, SIDS CRAZY SALT, blue cheese, chopped bacon, dried thyme and pepper in a mixing bowl. Don’t over mix! You want it to be kind of crumbly and not so much creamy.
With a spoon, fill each onion cup with the cheese mixture distributing equally among the onions.
Place the stuffed onions on a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to wrap up and over the tray, creating a tent for the onions. Fold the foil top the best you can to lock in the moisture.
Put your foiled onion package on the grill grates and cook “medium high” for 20-30 minutes with the grill covered.
Remove from heat, carefully open foil and either serve one per guest or combine in a serving bowl for family style dining.
