Onion bombs are a great way to cook on a campfire. They’re a very simple and easy to make dinner. Plus, you don’t need any special cooking equipment.
Simply cut an onion in half, peel the outer layers off, and fill them with the TVP mixture.
Join the two halves back together,
wrap them in heavy-duty aluminum foil, and then place them on hot coals.
Serve as is with some sides
or as a sandwich.
The onion bombs can be assembled a day ahead of time.
