Method

  1. Trim 1/2" off the root and stem ends of each onion and then peel. Make a 1/2" deep, top to bottom slit on one side of each onion. Pull off the first 2 layers on each onion, doing so gently so they don’t break. Set the 6 onion shells on a work surface. Save rest of the onions for another use.
  2. Divide and shape the sausage meat into 6, 3" wide patties. Set a cheese cube in the centre of each patty. Pull up the sides of the meat on each patty to cover up the cheese and create a ball. Set one of these sausage balls in the centre of each onion shell.
  3. Wrap the sides of each onion with two strips of bacon, leaving a small circle of the meat filling exposed at the top. Secure the bacon in place with toothpicks.
  4. Preheat barbecue to 400˚F. Place onion bombs in a barbecue-safe pan and set on one side of barbecue. Close the lid and turn the heat off underneath the onions; leave the other side of the barbecue set to medium-high. Cook onions 20 minutes, and then rotate the pan and cook 20 minutes more. (As the onions cook, check the temperature and adjust flame as needed to maintain the 400˚F cooking temperature.)
  5. Brush onions with barbecue sauce and cook 5 to 10 minutes more, or until the centre of each bomb reaches 165˚F on instant-read meat thermometer. Garnish top of each bomb with a rosemary sprig and serve.
