Vidalia Onion Gratin
This recipe serves: 8  
2 pounds Vidalia onions, medium size
3 tablespoons heavy cream
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
freshly ground allspice
2 tablespoons whole green peppercorns (optional)
1/2 cup snipped, fresh chives

Cooking Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 375F.

2. Place the onions in an ovenproof dish. Bake until tender and easily pierced with a skewer, about 30 to 45 minutes depending on size. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

3. Peel and cut the onions into 1/2" thick slices. In a large bowl, combine the onions, cream, a generous dose of the spices, green peppercorns and the chives. Lay the onions slightly overlapping in a baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake until the onions are very soft and slightly golden on top, about 30 to 45 minutes. Allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Serving Size: 1/8th of the gratin
