  1. Peel onions, leaving root ends intact. Cut each onion into eighths, cutting to, but not through, root ends.
  2. Place each onion on a lightly greased 12-inch square of aluminum foil. Press butter evenly into onions; sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cheese. Wrap onions in foil, and arrange in a 13-x9-inch pan.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour.

Love this recipe. I order my Vidalia onions from Georgia every year since we don't have them in sunny California. I get 60 lbs every year wrap them in paper towels and put them in the extra frig. they keep for a long time. Thanks for the recipe.

Very tastey! I put these onions on the grill and they got a thumbs up from everyone.

These smelled and tasted wonderful. Next time I plan to cut the root end as well, making it easier to serve the onion in wedges. Thanks Al!
