Recipe of the week: Campfire onion

Each week, Let’s RV will publish one recipe each week from the RV Centennial Cookbook authored by Evada Cooper.

The book features a collection of recipes submitted by RVers themselves. The author is providing the recipes in hopes of encouraging RVers to submit more recipes to be included in a new edition expected to be published soon.

This week’s recipe is for a campfire onion. It was submitted by Huck Hutchens from Weslaco, Texas. He and his wife, Peggy, have lived in a 1988 36-foot Overland or 1999 Holiday Rambler for more than 10 years traveling around the United States and Canada. Although the now have a permanent home, they use the RV while serving as park hosts.


  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • Texas Pete hot sauce (to taste)
  • Season All or Old Bay crab seasoning


Slice the onion like cutting a pie almost to the bottom of the onion. Place on a sheet of aluminum foil that will cover the onion when folded up around it. Dribble olive oil and Worcestershire sauce on top of the onion.

Add several drops of Texas Pete hot sauce, if desired. Sprinkle Season All seasoned salt or Old Bay crab seasoning on top of onion. Fold aluminum foil up and around the onion and twist excess to keep steam inside while onion is on the grill.

Onion is done when it can be mashed with bottom of fork or spoon. Be careful of steam when opening foil
