Vidalia onions are local to Georgia, and I try to buy, cook and eat local whenever possible, as you know.  Unlike its brothers, the yellow, red and white onion, vidalias lack the sharp, astringent taste of other onions, and in turn taste sweet.  While I don’t discriminate against any onions (I adore them all), I will say you can find me grilling vidalias on the big green egg with just olive oil, salt and pepper quite often.  So when I had the opportunity to team up with Williams-Sonoma and whip up something local to my great state of Georgia, I immediately thought vidalias.  

So with summer beginning to sing its last sweet song, I knew I wanted to try a recipe that eases a summertime flavor into fall.  My answer: a recipe for Creamed Vidalia Onion Bake with Homemade Herb Bread Crumbs.  Sweet vidalias and shallots combine with creamy mushrooms and warm cinnamon, to then be topped with crispy herb breadcrumbs to create the perfect bite. Sweet + salty, soft but with a crunch.  

This dish completely stands on it’s own, but it would also be the perfect accompaniment for grilled steak, roast chicken or Thanksgiving dinner.  Imagine a little bit of this, a bit of stuffing, and a bit of turkey all on one fork…divine!  (Is it too early to talk Turkey??)

Be sure to tune in for my Williams-Sonoma Instagram takeover this Friday; I’ll be celebrating its store opening at Ponce City Market here in Atlanta all weekend long!  I’ll also be at the store all day Friday, so come say hi and join in the (yummy) festivities.  Can’t be there in person, I’m periscoping from the store at 12:00 est on Friday so make sure you join us at least virtually!  Truly, MKR

  • I feel like Vidalia onions always get the short end of the stick – they’re always associated with the yellow and red onions, but they are actually quite tasty. Like you, I love them simply grilled. This recipe is certainly on my list now as well!
