Roasted Vidalia Onions

To add more flavors to vegetables, roast them in your oven. Roasting vegetables-carrots, garlic, onions, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, for example-concentrates their flavors and brings out their natural sweetness.

Roasted Vidalia Onions


  • 4 medium Vidalia or other sweet onions, each peeled and cut into 8 wedges
  • Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar



  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Arrange onion wedges, flat side down, on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle thyme, salt, and pepper over onions. 
  3. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Turn onions over.
  4. Bake an additional 25 minutes. Spoon onions into a serving dish. Sprinkle with vinegar.
