Spinach-Stuffed Vidalia Onions

Recipe by yooper

A great side dish for a a roast or poultry meal. When vidalia onions are not available, you can substitute another sweet variety, such as Maui, or use plain old yellow onions.

This was a new way to cook my fave-Viadalias fresh from Georgia! I took a shortcut, and used frozen chopped spinach, which I thawed & drained. I used parmesan reggiano, which is a cut above the canned stuff. Very good, and I will make again. But I will go with fresh spinach next time. Thanks, yooper!
