Vidalia Onion "Cupcakes" for Kids (think cheeseburgers!)

Large Vidalia Onions
Aluminum Foil Pre-Cut Sheets
Bacon Strips
Shredded Cheese
Soft Butter
Cinnamon
Garlic Salt

Melt butter is a sauce pan, keep warm. Cut bacon strips in half. Peel onions, cut top and bottom flat.

Using a normal soup spoon, core the center out of the onion, leaving about 1/2" on the side and bottom.

Line inside of onion with bacon.

LIGHTLY pack shredded cheese inside onion/bacon. Set on aluminum foil sheet. Drizzle melted butter over cheese until it oozes over the sides. Sprinkle onion with cinnamon.

Sprinkle onion with garlic salt. Wrap aluminum foil around onion so that it looks like Hershey's Chocolate Kiss. Place on grill away from direct heat.

Periodically squeeze the onion, and when it's soft all the way around, it is done.

OR...Bake in oven at 350F for 25 to 30 minutes.
