Baked Vidalia

Baked Vidalia 3

Don’t you just love this time of year? So many yummy veggies in season! I seem to put Vidalias in nearly everything. They’re so sweet, they don’t even need cooking most of the time. In fact, their flavor is so mild that they just disappear in some cooked dishes. So, on the tail ends of their season, when the nights are cool, they get to have the solo veggie role. So easy, so delicious! You can experiment with different seasonings, just keep it light so the delicate onion flavor keeps center stage.  I keep promising myself I’ll use olive oil instead of butter next time, but, well…life is short! You’ll find a printer-friendly version of the recipe at the bottom of this page.

Ingredients:

a pinch of dried thyme

Preparation:

1.) Slice the top & roots off the onion, and peel it.

2.) Score an X shape in the top, about halfway through.

3.) Place the butter on top, crumble the thyme over the butter, and wrap the whole thing tightly in foil.

4.) Bake at 350° for 30 – 60 minutes, depending on the size of your onion. Be careful opening the foil when the onion is done!
