If you are on a Keto or low carb diet, then you may have heard of Keto Onion Bombs. Basically, you stuff a medium, hollowed out onion with a yummy mixture of beef and cheese. The meat turns out perfectly cooked and cheesy, while the onions are crisp and full of flavor. I have also made these keto onion bombs wrapped in bacon, so if you are a bacon lover, try that variety too! Be sure to also check out our Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl.
Keto Onion Bombs
Before you prepare the onions, you'll want to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut off each end of the onion, peel it, and then remove the inner layers. (I found it easiest to do a criss-cross pattern with my knife and poke out each inner quarter of the onion.) Save the inner layers of the onion for something else. I used them for soup!
Repeat the same process with each onion, and place the onions in a casserole dish or a baking sheet with a lip.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine the ground beef, Italian seasoning, pork rinds, Parmesan cheese and Worcestershire sauce. The egg is an optional binder, as the onion will hold the beef together if you choose not to incorporate it.
Press about one tablespoon of the meat mixture into each onion. You may need more depending on the size of your onions.
Press down with your fingers to compact the meat in the onion and create a well for the cheese.
Add a cube of cheese into each onion well.
Add some more of the meat mixture to the onion until it is filled nearly to the top.
Bake the onions for 30-45 minutes. These bombs were cooked for 45 minutes, a perfect medium cook that allowed the cheese to melt.
These Keto Onion Bombs made a great low carb meal. They are cheesy and delicious!
