Spring is in full swing and Vidalia Onions are in season!  It also means more entertaining and social gatherings – socially distanced of course!  The warmer weather means that we can entertain a few friends or family outdoors safely.   To spice things up a bit, throw a Kentucky Derby style party with mint juleps and sweet Vidalia onion recipes.  

Vidalia Onions, which will be featured in 5-star recipes at the Kentucky Derby on May 1st, is a sweet onion that’s grown in 20 counties in South Georgia.  This sweet onion can be enjoyed in every day recipes such as Vidalia Onion and Potato Au Gratin or in elevated dishes such as this Vidalia Onion and Bacon Quiche.   This dish is packed with Vidalia onions and salty bacon which complements the sweetness of the onion.  Store-bought pie crust makes this dish super easy to make!  

Serve for brunch with tea sandwiches, cheese straws, fruit salad and a festive drink that your guests are sure to love.   Whether you are thinking of a small gathering with friends or just the people in your household, Kentucky Derby’s Party Central has tons of ideas and recipes that you can make at home!
