Makes 12 servings

6 large sweet white onions, such as Vidalia

12 strips bacon

2 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and wash the onions. With the point of a small, sharp knife, cut a 1-inch core from the top of each onion. Wrap 2 slices of bacon around each onion, securing it with toothpicks, and put 1 teaspoon butter in each core. Place each onion on a square of aluminum foil and bring the edges loosely together at the top.


Put the foli-wrapped onions in a large pan and bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until the onions are tender when pierced with the tip of a knife. Cool the onions for a few minutes, then unwrap and cut in quarters to serve.
