The owner of the company I used to work at sent everyone a 5 lb box of Vidalia onions every year. This was included on a recipe brochure one year from the farm. I was surprised at how much I liked them, and they are healthy too.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Peel onions and cut in half crosswise.
- Place onions, cut sides down, in an 8 inch square baking dish, drizzle with water. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
- Combine honey and remaining ingredients.
- Turn onions over. Brush half of the honey mixture over the onions.
- Bake, uncovered, an additional 30 minutes or until tender, basting with remaining honey mixture after 15 minutes.
My DH loved this, especially with the hot peppers! I think I'll cut the honey by 1/2, it seemed to override the flavor of the original vidalia which is basically sweet in nature. The red pepper is a must! It gave the tongue teasing sweet/hot flavor. thanks.
This was a great tasting side dish!!! We had this as part of our Easter dinner. I used the cayenne pepper on it also. I left out the butter but I think I should have added it. Made for PAC Spring 2012.
I'm always amazed at how wonderful a recipe can be with
simple ingredients. This was #1 in my book: delicious, easy, healthy,
novel. Served with my posted Lebanese-style meatballs, sauteed broccoli rabe
and plain basmati rice. The sauce alone earns five stars but it was especially good spooned over the rice and I happily lapped it all up! Used a 'Hermiston Sweet' onion grown here in Oregon. Thanks! Will make again soon! Reviewed for Best of 2011 Tag Game.
