I have always heard how good these are, never tried them. I'm sure there are some jaws hitting the floor right now in GA :)[p]I am used to some very tasty sweet red's from the mid-west.[p]Anywho, the better half had standing orders to buy some if they were there. She came home with 4 yesterday.[p]This weekend I will try the 'Vidalia Onion Pie' recipe from this site (forget author, sorry) - was not to keen about it until they said "goes great with steak". Sold.[p]Any other recipes to try with these?[p]I just have always heard so much about these that I want to try a few cooks while they are in the store.[p]Thanks,[p]LVM

    Cut the skin off, and part of both ends so it is flat, then cut it almost though so you have wedges that hold together at the bottom[p]Put butter on top and wrap in foil. Cook it for 1 hour at 400 or so or adjust according to heat.[p]finished product is sweet tasty and slightly carmilized [p]goes great with steak[p]In fact I put it on when I fire up the grill and leave it on through the hole TRex process...

    LasVegasMac:[p]Having just picked up eighty pounds of Vidalia onions, they are great! But what does one do in the winter? Purchase sweet onions from the western part of South America (Peru, Equator, Chile)! Sweet onions are produced from the granex hybrid seed variety and have distinctive bulbs that are light yellow in color and are thick and flat. There are three or four sweet onion production areas in America, Vidalia being the best known of them. Farmers Markets are great places to make bulk purchases if you really like sweet onions.
  • LasVegasMac,
    Costco in Vegas had Vidalia onions last week. Can't remember the price, but not too bad. They spoil easily. Best way to store is in old panty hose leg. Drop one in a leg,tie a knot, then drop in another, and so on. Then find a cool dark place and hang up your onion stash.[p]Best,

    i like them wrapped in foil. slightly hollow the top add some butter, beef broth, balsamic and some cowlick. wrap and cook

  • LasVegasMac, Vidalias are good any way you cook them, or eaten raw. I cooked 2 last nite on mr. egg. I just peel off the skin, brush with olive oil, give em a dustin with gilded splinters rub and put rack, cook right over fire for hour. yum yum

    Vadalias are fantastic.
    Take the skin off, gut one end off, load with butter, use a little honey, wrap in foil, pop on the BGE for about an hour at most any temp 300 to 500 and you will have an enjoyable little something to compliment most main course meals.[p]Good luck [p]Kyle

    Other recipes for Vidalia's ... here is my $0.02[p]I 1/4 an onion and then slice into rings. Saute in 2 tbsp of butter and carmelize (cook, stirrong constantly until the turn carmel brown, but not black burnt)[p]Once carmelized, use them in bread recipes, on pizza, in scrambled eggs, the list is endless[p]Banker John
