Grilled Tangy Onion Flowers

My husband didn't care for these, but my family had enjoyed them. I'm not sure it's worth having the grill on for an hour just for these, though.

Grilled Tangy Onion Flowers
4 medium onions
Vegetable oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp. fresh oregano
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/3 cup seasoned croutons, crushed

Heat coals or gas for direct heat. Peel onions, cut 1/2-inch slice from top of each onion, but leave root end intact. Cut each onion from top into 8 wedges to within 1/2 inch of the root end. Gently pull wedges apart to separate slightly.

Brush four pieces of foil with oil. Place one onion on each piece of foil. Sprinkle onions evenly with remaining ingredients except croutons, and wrap tightly in foil.

Grill onions 4 inches from medium heat 50 to 60 minutes or until very tender. To serve, sprinkle onions with croutons.
