“The greatest dishes are very simple.” – Auguste Escoffier the “Emperor of Chefs”
Vidalia onions are named so because they are primarily grown in Vidalia, Georgia. The reason these onions are unusually sweet is that there’s a low amount of sulfur in the soil. It was named Georgia’s state vegetable in 1990.
Cheesy Baked Vidalia Onion Dip is a super easy recipe to make. You can also make it ahead of time (2 days) and then bake it whenever you’re ready.
Here’s the Cheesy Baked Vidalia Onion Dip Recipe:
Cheesy Baked Vidalia Onion Dip

You can use a food processor to chop up the onion. This will speed things up quite a bit.
Adjust the hot sauce to your liking. I put 1 teaspoon in the recipe, but I like it a bit hotter, so I usually add more.
You can substitute 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder for the two minced garlic cloves.
Add your favorite flavors to make this dip even more delicious, like jalapeño peppers or artichoke hearts.
I used crostini as the dipper, but feel free to use crackers or freshly cut vegetables instead.
Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe:
I love, love, love my Corningware baking dishes. Best of all, they come with lids, so if you have leftovers simply add a lid and put it in the refrigerator, and you’re done.
