Baked Vidalia Onions

Vidalia onion recipes are some of my favorites to whip up. Served alongside any of a variety of fish and meats, these tender onions are a nice change of pace. Folks find it a fun and flavorful side dish. —Norma Durham, Rogersville, Tennessee

    I added a beef bouillon cube with the butter and it made a delicious thin sauce!!!

    Vidalia onions are just coming in season now,so when I saw this recipe, I knew I'd have to try it. I made one onion as directed in Norma Durham's recipe, but added some Italian seasoning to the second onion. Both were delicious, but we preferred the jazzed up version a tad more than the plain one. I can imagine adding all sorts of different seasonings to this super easy side. Five stars !!
