Cheesy Baked Vidalia Onions

Yield 4 servings


  • 4 small Vidalia onions
  • 2 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 4 ounces Jarlsberg cheese, cut into pieces*

How to Make It

  1. Peel onions; cut a thin slice from bottom of each one, forming a base for onions to stand on. Scoop out a shallow hole in top of each onion.

  2. Place each onion on a 12-inch square of heavy-duty aluminum foil; wrap sides of each one, forming a basin for liquid. Allow some overhang of foil, leaving tops of onions exposed.

  3. Stir together broth and next 3 ingredients; drizzle evenly over onions. Stir together seasoning blend, garlic salt, and lemon pepper. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of seasoning mixture over each onion. Top each with 1 tablespoon butter.

  4. Press foil edges together; gently twist to seal. Place on a baking sheet.

  5. Bake at 400° for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Gently unseal foil edges, leaving onions and liquid in foil cups. Top onions evenly with cheese.

  6. Broil 5 1/2 inches from heat 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.

  7. * Swiss cheese, Monterey Jack cheese with peppers, or fontina cheese may be substituted for Jarlsberg cheese.

  8. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Morton Natures Seasons Seasoning Blend for seasoning blend.
