For the love of the Vidalia

So some things in life come around once in a lifetime ... true love, birth of your first child, a trip to the Swiss Alps, a Super Bowl ticket, Georgia winning the SEC.  Well okay, some things we are blessed to experience more than once in a lifetime.  Some once a year in the spring and yes, friends, it's that time again!   What we've all been waiting for ...(cue the drum roll please)  the arrival of the first crops of the Vidalia Onion straight from the fields of Toombs County, Georgia!  I, for one, am extremely excited when I hear that those big beautiful onions have arrived at J&J Foods!  Woohoo!  Over the next couple of weeks,  I'll be posting some great recipes using those beauties!  After all, they are the state vegetable of Georgia.  So let's have some Southern pride and eat a Vidalia today!  They won't last long...

5 medium Vidalia onions, sliced
1 stick butter
1 stack of Ritz Crackers, crumbled
