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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large vidalia onions
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 14 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon curry powder
  • 18 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel onions and cut in half crosswise.
  3. Place onions, cut sides down, in an 8 inch square baking dish, drizzle with water. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  4. Combine honey and remaining ingredients.
  5. Turn onions over. Brush half of the honey mixture over the onions.
  6. 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.
