Vidalia Onions are a springtime treat that only the south gives to the world. Sweet, crunchy goodness that makes recipes oh so yummy.
The sweetness is said to come from the low amount of sulfur in the south Georgia soil where they are grown. We like to buy a 50 lb bag, sometimes to share with others and sometimes eat here. A purist would say slice it up thin and throw some mayonnaise on two slices of bread and make yourself a sandwich. Each year I enjoy looking for new ways to serve them up, and I have included a few recipes below for what we might try this year.
Cheesy sweet onion goodness is what this recipe exudes throughout your kitchen when you make it. Serving in a black iron skillet sets a fun and easy presentation
This is really one of our standard ways to fix the onions each year except this year we are going to wrap the bacon as Farm Girl's Dabbles did.
This tart would be good towards the end of Vidalia season because the first tender crop of corn and tomatoes are coming on. You could use this as a main dish with a side salad to make great summer meal.
This is a sweet savory soup with a mild and faintly nutty flavor from the rice.
