Shriners Sweet Vidalia Onions Have Arrived
For the last several years the Casper Shrine Club has had a unique fundraiser that is always highly anticipated.
Every year at this time of the year folks start looking for the sweet Vidalia onions to show up and they are here. Starting today Wednesday, May 7th, and until they last , 18,000 lbs of Vidalia onions will be available for purchase from 9-6 at the Casper Shrine Club at the corner of 39th and Coffman, right behind the Sunrise Shopping Center. A 10# bag will cost you $15. Last year it only took 3 and a half days to sell out, so if you aren’t quick, you will miss out. There is also a chance that remaining onions will be available at Sutherlands during the car show on Saturday.
Here is a new recipe from www.grilling24x7.com that I ran across that will be made with this batch of onions.
Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings with Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce
1 pack Bacon
4-5 Sweet Onions
2 T Black Pepper
1/2 cup Sriracha Hot Sauce
2 T Mayo
1 tsp Lime Juice
Cut onions into 1/2 inch thick rings and pop the internal rings out until you have a nice sturdy onion ring.
Brush onion with hot sauce.
Wrap each onion ring with bacon and secure with a skewer or toothpick.
Heavily cover the onion rings with pepper and smoke, grill or bake for about 90 minutes at 250-350 degrees.
To make the spicy sriracha mayo, combine 2 T of mayo, 1 T of sriracha sauce, and 1 tsp of lime juice. Mix well.
Here are step by step instructions.
