Caramelized Onions

Rating: 4.43 stars
This has the sweet Vidalia onion and it's just plain good. Other sweet onions can also be used if Vidalia is not in season. Try it, you'll like it.

Onion Jam

Rating: 4.62 stars
A family favorite. Expect a few wrinkled noses maybe at the title, but result is worth the effort. Maybe not for beginning cooks since there's a couple potentially tricky steps. Serve a cup of jam over a bar of cream cheese with crackers, or as a spread for meat sandwiches. Keep in refrigerator in covered container for up to two weeks.

Creamy Vidalia Onion Soup

Grilled Mushrooms and Onions in Foil

Onions and mushrooms are sliced, seasoned, and wrapped inside a durable packet of foil, crimped to seal, and placed on the grill. Super easy with big, bold flavor. A fantastic topper for steaks, potatoes, etc.

Grilled Cheese, Pickle and Vidalia Onion Sandwich

Slow-Cooker Posole

Rating: 4.63 stars

Traditional Mexican Posole is served with shredded cabbage, lime wedges, avocado, onion, cilantro, and, of course, warm tortillas. Many Mexican markets have posole meat already chopped up for you. You can add another can of hominy if your slow-cooker is large. I prefer hot enchilada sauce with salsa, but the regular kind will do.
