Whole Sweet Vidalia Onions

OnionRoasted Whole Sweet Vidalia Onions

for each onion:

  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup beer
  • sprinkle of brown sugar, optional

Cut the top from each onion and peel the outer skin. Carefully trim the roots from the bottom leaving the whole onion intact. Use a spoon, melon scoop or peeler to remove a little of the core from each onion going about half way down and about an inch in diameter.

For each onion, cut a square of heavy aluminum foil and mold around the sides. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and brown sugar. Add the pat of butter and the beer. Loosely bring the corners of the foil together at the top and twist together to seal.

Oven …. Place on a pan in a 375 to 450 degree F. oven for about 30 minutes to cook.
Grill …. Place on a hot grill for 30 to 45 minutes.

Let onions cool a tad and remove to a bowl if desired, the flavorful juice is just outstanding.

Note: Do not discard this juice, save if for other uses. I like to use it in a butter reduction when sautéing shrimp. Yum..
