2 Vidalia Onion Favorite Recipes

The Vidalia Onion is the official vegetable for the state of Georgia. There is a rich history behind the Vidalia Onion which you can read more about here. In fact there is even a festival honoring the vegetable which is so famous it has been featured on The Food Network!

It is Vidalia onion season which prompts me to share a couple of my personal favorite recipes for cooking Vidalia onions. It is finally time for some summer food!

“Vidalia onions aren’t just the most famous onions in the world; I think they may be the only famous onions in the world.” Bobby Flay

Vidalia onions are sweet. You can use them in any recipe which calls for onions. Here you can find a nice Black Eye Pea Salsa recipe which also calls for chopped onions.

If you are REALLY a big onion fan, have you ever grilled or baked them with bouillon cubes? You simply peel the onion, hollow out a hole in the center, drop in a beef or chicken bouillon cube and either grill or bake wrapped in foil!
