How to Bake Vidalia Onions

– Vidalia onion – vegetable, chicken, or beef bouillon cube – butter

First, preheat your oven to 350°F. Peel your onion, leaving the root intact. If your onion sits level, you can leave it alone. If not, cut a thin slice off the root to create a flat bottom.


Use a paring knife to cut a 1-inch deep cone into the top of the onion.


Insert a vegetable, chicken, or beef bouillon cube into the hole.


Fill the rest of the hole with butter, about  1-2 tablespoons. Season with salt and pepper.


Place the filled onion on a sheet of foil large enough to encase it. Wrap the onion in foil, bringing the edges up in the center.
