The Vidalia onions we love here in the South are going to be plentiful soon. This is quite a take on a "pie", but it is delicious and different from the usual vegetable dishes.



Mix cracker crumbs and the 1/2 stick of melted butter. Press into an 8 inch pie pan. Saute onions in 2 Tbsp. butter until they are translucent. Put the onions on the "crust" in the pie pan.

Mix eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour this mixture over the onions. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top and sprinkle with paprika to taste.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes until firm. Remove from the oven and top with chopped, fresh parsley. Cut into slices to serve.

Cucumber, Vidalia Onion and Tomato Salad II

Here's another variation:


  • cucumber (any kind)
  • onion (any kind but Vidalia and red are best)
  • tomato (any kind)
  • Balsamic vinegar (about 2 tbsp as a marinade)
  • *garlic powder (Optional)


Cut into pieces, put in Ziploc with Balsamic, and garlic to preference, marinade for 30 minutes - 36 hours, turning bag every so often the longer you marinade. The longer you marinade, the better, but picks up flavors within 30 minutes.

The Vidalia onion is the state vegetable of Georgia. This remarkably sweet onion has none of the bite of other onions making it a good choice for certain dishes or if you simply don't like the intensity of other varieties.
