This tried and true recipe is easy to make and even easier to enjoy! Full of roasted campfire flavor, it’s sure to be a hit!
2 large onions
2 lbs. ground beef
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. basil
2 Tbsp. oregano
2 Tbsp. parsley
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 cup milk
Tomato sauce (optional, they really do not need the sauce)
Peel onions & cut in half. Separate the onions into matching pieces.
In a bowl, mix together all the remaining ingredients except for the tomato sauce. It is easiest to use your hands. Do not over mix or the result will be very dense. Fill two sides of an onion, then press together. Repeat.
Wrap 5 or 6 bombs per foil packet. (I use heavy duty aluminum foil and wrap at least 2 times)
To cook, place them in a large amount of very hot coals for 20-30 minutes, flip over and cook for another 20-30 minutes. Total cooking time will depend on the size of your bombs and the hotness of your coals. Check on them to be sure they are cooked all the way through.
You could also roast these in a 350º oven if you aren’t camping.
To serve, remove the foil and top with tomato sauce if desired.
Makes approximately 10 servings.
