A simple, delicious trick that my mom taught me... enjoy :-)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 vidalia onion
  • 2 -3 tablespoons butter


  1. "Quarter" the onion by making an "X" cut - but do not slice all the way through. (Bottoms will still be attached.)
  2. Place slivers of butter between the slices.
  3. Microwave on high 3-5 minutes.

Simple & good addition to the table. We also add bullion to butter - very little as it can get salty...

Wow! I love simple things that are delicious and this is a keeper. I cooked a couple up this weekend to serve over potato cakes and ended up eating one all by itself. Thanks for a great recipe!
