A simple way to get flavorful onions

Big Poppa loves “sautéing” onions in a foil pouch.  It’s a quick and easy method that doesn’t require another pan. Seriously, the hardest part of this recipe is cutting the onions.

Use these onions anywhere you want to add more flavor: steaks, tacos, sandwiches, soups, pizzas… the sky’s the limit. Big Poppa likes using them on his Upside Down Tabasco Butter Burger.
