The story of these sweet onions began in 1931, in Toombs County, Georgia, when a farmer named Coleman discovered that the onions he had planted were not hot, as he had anticipated, but sweet! He sold the onions for $3.50 per 50-pound bag, a big price in the Great Depression, and many other farmers began growing the crop. The onions sold out of the local farmer’s market in the city of Vidalia, and word soon got around about “Vidalia onions.” This recipe’s rich combination of potatoes, sweet onions, and cheese would surely make Farmer Coleman smile.
Tip: For a stronger cheese flavor, mix Cheddar and blue cheese, or use Huntsman, a blend of Double Gloucester and blue cheese.
