This is the same recipe but with instructions for the microwave oven. I prefer the onion being roasted in the oven, but somedays you just need it fast.
- Peel Vidalia and scoop out middle leaving a hole the size of a quarter through entire Vidalia. (I would not brake through he bottom of the onion so flavor stays in the onion).
- Place Vidalia in baking dish.
- Inset bouillion cube in bottom of hole and fill the rest with butter.
- Wrap vidalia (with bouillion and butter inside) loosely in plastic wrap and cook on high for 7-9 minutes.
- Be careful when removing plastic wrap from cooked Vidalia.
This is a fav! Quick, easy and delicious! You can sub olive oil for the butter...
This recipe is awesome! I microwaved one onion in an onion cooker made for the microwave. Since the vidalia onion I had was small, I used 1/2 bouillon cube. After placing the cube in the hole, I filled it with unsalted butter. I microwaved it for 7 minutes and it is "to die for"! I thought that the middle would be too strongly flavored by the bouillon cube, but I was wrong. The flavor was stronger in the middle, but not too much so. The flavors melded throughout the onion! This will definitely be a repeat in my household! Thanks Charlotte J!
This tasted great! I just had one as a snack before dinner. What a great idea! The only thing is that when I microwaved it for 7 minutes with the plastic, the plastic melted to the onion!!! I was able to get it off and still enjoy it though! Next time I will try your oven recipe. Thanks!!!!!
