Vidalia onions are by far my favorite onion. I just love the sweetness. I substitute them for white onions in many of the dishes I make. When they are in season (for a very short time) I buy them like they were the last things on earth. Roasted Vidalia onions is one of my favorite side dishes. It’s a bit different.
Roasted Vidalia onions taste just like French onion soup. They cook up tender and juicy. And since you’re using Vidalia onions they have a nice sweetness to them. If by chance you have any leftover onion, just slice and toss onto your next burger!
Grilled avocados are crazy-good too.
