Honey Roasted Vidalia Onions

Do you like Vidalia sweet onions? 

I do. 

Even so, I was surprised when this recipe received all 5 star reviews when I posted it awhile ago on another recipe website that I know longer use. I’m moving my most popular recipes from that website here. Which means I’m overdue for sharing this Vidalia Onion recipe.

Many years ago, I worked at a company and the owner discovered Vidalia Onions before they were carried in most grocery stores. He loved them and started sending a 5 pound box to every employee, directly from the farm, every year.

One year, the box came with a recipe pamphlet that included this recipe. I tried it. Wow was I impressed.

If you give it a try, I hope you’ll leave a review in the comments below.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
