Roasted Vidalia Onions

Recipe by  

"Roasted in the oven or on the grill, these onions are simple and tasty. They taste like French onion soup, and smell great. In college I used to put it on the top of my gas stove! Still delicious just the same. Very very easy and loads of flavor."

Wow, so easy and yet so tasty and fun! I made these exactly to recipe except placed them in the oven for approximately 30 minutes with baking potatoes and then placed them on the grill beside our steaks for another 15 minutes. They were done to perfection! See submitted photo. Thank you.

I’ve wanted to try this for a long time, but never got around to it until now. I will say, the flavor is very good, however that’s where my praise for this recipe ends. I had to roast mine way, way longer than 15 minutes, more like an hour. Even after an hour the very middle of the onion wasn’t done. These were also very messy to serve, at least for me. I ended up putting them in a shallow bowl on top of the dinner plate to help contain the juices. I doubt that I’ll be making this again, but I’m glad I finally tried it.

Very good flavor, but the onions were nowhere near ready in 15 minutes. I had to put them back in for another 15 minutes, so, for me, it was 30 minutes. Worth the effort though.

Wow, these definitely do taste just like french onion soup! I didn't use any butter and added a little garlic powder. We did these on the grill and they ended up a bit mushy. One word of advice if you're doing them on the grill - poke a few holes for the moisture to escape!

for an added treat, place a slice of swiss cheese on each onion before you remove it from the oven. wait until it has started to melt before removing from the oven.

Definately add some crushed garlic, but go easy on the salt as the boullion cube is very salty....Sprinkle with a little fresh grated parmesean cheese and a little paprika at the end.

Ohmygosh! These are so good! I've made them a few times and they always taste great! Just like french onion soup but without the hassle. I've even used yellow onions and they're okay, but I prefer using the vidalia. I added some crushed fresh garlic for added flavour. Yummy!

This was a recipe that I had forgotten about ... what a shame. The family LOVED these and welcomed them back on the menu!
