  • “Just love this recipe. I used 1 large Vidalia onion cutting the rest of the ingredients back. I made the mistake of not making the whole(cone) big enough to fill with the filling goodness. I also skipped the sugar and no garnish just couldn`t wait to bite into this sweet onion that was still slightly crunchy but well cooked. Thanks for the goodness!”
