"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.

"I really want to try this bread - could it be frozen, and re-warmed before serving?"

"My sister shared this recipe with me so I decided to make it with a twist. I only had half a Vidalia onion so I added 3 cloves of minced garlic to the onions as they cooked. I added fresh chopped parsley and fresh thyme to the batter. This bread is delicious and quick to make. I envision making this bread in the fall to be served with homemade soups and stew."
