Onions offer options
It’s always amazing to see the possibilities that food presents. Take the orange, for example. Scoop out the inside and mix it with coconut and orange sherbet. Spoon back into the shell of the orange and it becomes a wonderful dessert.
How about the basic onion? Endless possibilities there, from caramelized onions to stuffed.
They do very well slow cooked, sliced or whole. In fact, the slow cooker is my preferred way to cook onions. The slow cooking method brings out the sweetness of the onion.
When Vidalia onions are in, they are excellent for recipes like the one here. They consistently have a milder flavor that blends well with just about any ingredient.
Since bacon seems to be in just about everything these days, how about Bacon Wrapped Onions?
Best of all, this is an extremely easy recipe and one that can be versatile. No matter what it is paired with, it’s a complementary side.
Pick the size of your onion depending on your particular needs for the dinner/brunch.
