If you're a total foodie like myself, then you know what April means. Hooray for Vidalia Onions!!!! With Vidalia Onions now being in season, it's time to chef up all those recipes calling for sweet onions since Vidalia onions did pioneer the sweet onion world!
Cultivated for more than 80 years by grower artisans, the Vidalia onion is the world’s first sweet onion. Its distinctive taste is derived from the weather, water and soil uniquely found within 20 South Georgia counties. In fact, 100 registered South Georgia growers produce the Vidalia onion crop each year since the perfect combination of mild winters & low sulfur soil, give Vidalia onions their delicious sweet flavor that make these onions the premier onion of many world renowned chefs and home cooks.
When I was a child I literally ate Vidalia Onions like apples! My grandmother always kept them in her kitchen and I would randomly eat onions due to their delicious sweet and crisp distinct flavor, leaving the rest of my family staring at me like I was nuts! If you're not up to biting into a raw Vidalia, Vidalia Onions are also incredibly versatile and add delicious flavor to a wide variety of chef-inspired dishes from salads to side items, dressings, dips and even desserts.
Vidalia Onions are hand planted, harvested and cured each season, making these incredibly sweet, juicy bulbs only available within a limited window from April to August. That's right, Vidalia onions are a seasonal treat only available in the spring and summer months.
To kick of Vidalia Onion season, I thought it would be fun to share a childhood favorite recipe of mine! When I wasn't biting into a raw Vidalia Onion, my parents would make Baked Vidalia Onions. Super easy to make and beyond delicious!!! With only 3 ingredients, even picky ones will enjoy the sweet and savory taste of Baked Vidalia Onions!

Slice The Tops Off Of The Vidalia Onions. Scoop Out Center With Spoon.
Place One Scoop Of Butter Into The Vidalia Onions. Then Stick The Beef Boullion In The Butter.

I never knew so much about vidalia onions before. When I roast my garlic, I almost do it this exact way minus the beef cube.

With summer coming, there will be a lot of grilling going on. I love the idea of baking onions on the grill. These look delicious.

These do look amazing. They are actually very similar to what I am doing when I am grilling up steaks. I make onions similar to this on the BBQ. I wouldn't have thought of putting the bullion cube into it though. This is definitely an idea for next time.

This is a post I'm pining for later. Every year our neighbor plants a crazy amount of onions and is always looking for people to pawn them off to. I'm never sure what to do with them on their own .. now I have an idea. Thank-you!

I have to admit that I used to eat these onions like apples when I was younger too. Everything I cook has some form of onion in it. This recipe I am going to be trying for sure. Thanks for sharing it.

Vidalia onions are sweet, but I did realize they were seasonal. I will have to keep that in mind going forward because I love to cook with these onions. Great information!

This is an interesting and unique recipe. I generously use onions in cooking and no onions in the house is a major emergency! LOL. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to try make some tonight.
4/21/2017 06:28:43 pm
I did not know those onions had a name. I just know they are large white onions. They do have a kind of sweetness in them. I will try your recipe too. I just might add a little cheese. Onions and cheese and beef cubes. :)

I've never tried making this before. It's really easy and it's something that I'd enjoy as well. Onions absorb flavor really well and it also adds its own lovely flavor.
