Vidalia Onion Casserole

Vidalia onions are fairly young, considering they were first discovered in 1931 during the tough days of the Great Depression. They grow exclusively in Georgia and are named for the town of Vidalia which is located close to the first fields that grew the crop. The onion is sweet because of the low sulphur content in the sandy Georgia soil. It’s quite possible you would not be able to grow Vidalias sweet if you did not have the right soil mix and make up.

Vidalia Onion Casserole

4 cups onions – cut in chunks

1 can cream of mushroom, undiluted

  1. Sounds wonderful! Somewhere in (I think Washington state) there is a very sweet mild onion grown, it may be called Yakima, but very similar to Vidalia.

  2. I’ve made this casserole several times and everyone LOVES it! I’ve got the onions cooking down right now, MIL requested it at the Thanksgiving dinner table :-D Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, I wish you all a very Happy and Joyous Thanksgiving!

    • Great news! I’m so glad you found me and that you are enjoying the casserole. If I ever see Vidalias out here I will buy them to make this dish for sure. :-)
