 Vidalia Onion Custard Bread
"As a vadalia onion broker, I'm also trying to find new ways to serve those sweet onions to family, friends and customers," shares Libby Beese of St. Augustine, Florida. Their sweetness comes through nicely in these moist wedges. TIP: "Serve with soups and stews at dinner or with your favorite egg dishes at brunch," Libby recommends.
