Onion Lollipops For the BBQ

Onion Lollipops For the BBQ

It’s time to give that boring old onion a bit of BBQ pizazz! These playful onion lollipops are brushed with a spicy marinade and take about 20 mins to grill. In fact you can use the marinade on sausages, chicken or any other meat so a good one to have up your sleeve.  We came across this recipe on Sainsbury’s magazine and just couldn’t wait to try it.
