Just picked up a 10# bag vidallias yesterday.  Last night fried up two small ones with five garlic cloves, put on a left over dough and made a white pie.  Dusted with tomatoe powder and a little sea salt, opened a bottle of pinot grigio, and the wife and I sat on the deck and watched the rabbits running around!  Was a great night!  unfortunatley no pictures :(

I buy whatever is in season and local at the farmer's market here in San Antonio.  We have gotten some great onions this year so far.

When I can get them, I love Vidalia onions, Walla Walla Sweets, or Maui Onions.

Also, the best sweet onion are the flat shaped ones.

I've never seen that before. What a great idea. Ever put any cheese in there with the onion?

No never tried cheese, I coat with sriracha  sauce before wrapping with bacon, then top with a little of my spice rub and smoke at 275 for about an hour and a half till the bacon is crisp
