Stuffed Onion Meatloaves

Servings 4 people


  • 1 pound 95% lean ground beef
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 4 large onions
  • Heavy-duty aluminum foil wrap


  • Preheat outdoor or indoor grill. Cut four 12- X 14-inch rectangles of foil wrap and set aside. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, egg white, tomato sauce, salt, pepper, and dry mustard; blend well with your very clean hands; set aside.
  • Remove the outer papery layers from the onions and cut each in half horizontally (you'll be forming little 'cups'). Remove the centers, leaving eight 1/4"-thick 'cups'.
  • Finely chop the center from one of the onions and mix it into the meat mixture (save remaining onion centers for another use – freeze or use within 4 days).
  • Spoon meat mixture into 4 of the onion halves, mounding it on top; place remaining onion halves on top of the filled halves and press together.
  • Tightly wrap each onion in the foil, folding the edges a few times to seal completely.
  • Grill stuffed onions on coals for 14 to 20 minutes per side. If using a gas grill, cook them for about 40 minutes.
  • You can also bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
