Baked Vidalia Onion

Vidalia onions are grown from a variety of onion called the yellow granex hybrid. To be considered a true Vidalia Onion they must be grown within a 50 mile radius of Vidalia, Georgia, where the rainfall, climate, and soil make up are attributed to the exceptionally sweet flavor. These same seeds planted elsewhere do not result in the same tasting onions. Use actual Vidalia Onions whenever possible to bake up this awesome tasting treat to serve with a beautifully cooked grilled steak.

  3. Place the onions in a small casserole dish lined with aluminum foil. Add butter cut in small slices and worcheshire sauce. Wrap in aluminum foil.
  4. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until onions are soft and easily cut with a fork. This is a delicious side item with steak and baked potato.

      I'm not one for cooked onions. I like them more when raw. HOWEVER, this hub is so informative and well-written that I'm actually looking forward to preparing this. Thank you and well done.

      How can people cook without onions? We used to have roast onions too - thank you beccacooling for this timely reminder - next roast meal I'll put some in - mmmmm.

      This sounds like an easy, delicious, and healthy side dish or snack. It is a great alternative to the breaded and deep fried version. I will definately be trying this out. Thanks!
