Spice Blend Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon freshly minced thyme or oregano
  • 2 teaspoons freshly minced rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Check out this video for step-by-step instructions:


  • 1 Peri & Sons Farms Sweet BBQ Bloomer Onion
  • 1 Packet BBQ Bloomer Spice Blend
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil or Melted Butter
  1. With a sharp knife, slice 1/2 inch off the top of the onion and then peel off only the outer-most layer. With the root-side down, begin at the top and cut 12-16 wedges cutting only down to about 1/2 inch of root end; although slit, the onion should remain whole.
  2. Place onion on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Open wedges slightly; sprinkle with either the fresh thyme, rosemary, salt, paprika and pepper recipe or our pre-prepared dried herb mix. Drizzle with butter or olive oil.
  3. Fold foil around onion and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 30-35 minutes or until tender.
  4. Let cool for 5 minutes. Unwrap, and enjoy!

Doesn't that just look delicious?! We love this recipe because it's a great appetizer to share or to enjoy on it's own as an entree. Now, let's kick it up a notch! Peri & Sons Farms has also provided five tasty dipping sauces to serve alongside your Sweet BBQ Bloomer Onion.
