Recipe News: Paula Deen shares her easy recipe for Vidalia onions

"Deen, host of the Food Network's wildly popular "Paula's Home Cooking," cookbook author and chef and owner of the Lady & Sons Restaurant in Savannah, Ga., says Vidalia onions bring back memories of family, friends and food fit for a king.

In the early 1970s, as a young mother on a budget, she occasionally splurged on steaks for Saturday night cookouts. "When the steaks and Vidalia onions were piled on our plates and we took our first bites, I think for a short while we all forgot that we were as poor as church mice because we were eating like kings," she says.

Deen's latest cookbook, "Paula Deen's Kitchen Classics" (Random House $29.95), is a collection of the best-selling "Lady & Sons, Savannah Country Cookbook" and "The Lady & Sons, Too! A Whole New Batch of Recipes from Savannah."

The sweet disposition of Vidalia onions is traced to Georgia's mild climate, low-sulfur soil and hands-on care. Seedlings are hand planted in the fall and winter. The sandy, loamy soil, moderate temperatures and gentle rains results in sweet onions that are hand-harvested and are twice as sweet as tear-producing storage onions and have half the pyruvic acid that can cause indigestion."

Includes recipe for:

  • Saturday Night Vidalia Onions
