Sweet Vidalia onions are the key to this tasty side dish.

Grown in 20 southern Georgia counties, Vidalia onions are only available for a few months each year, from April until August. Don't miss your chance to make this savory cheesy dish with just the right amount of sweet.

(Produce identification sticker has a PLU code of 4159 in grocery stores. Only real Vidalia onions will do!)
