vidalia onion and blue cheese

When I was in college, I worked at a restaurant called the Hatteras.  They had amazing food, and I think the owners played a large role in teaching me what good food was all about.  They used local and seasonal ingredients before it was cool to do so.  They used the best ingredients that they could get their hands on, and it made every meal there truly delicious.  The restaurant was a nutty place to work at, they were crazy days for sure, but so much fun.  Some of my closest friends were made there, and even though the restaurant closed it doors many years ago, we still hang out whenever we can.  This grilled onion comes from my Hatteras days, it was served alongside our beef tenderloin, and I make it every summer.  I think that I have served literally thousands of these babies in my day, and I have never tired of looking at them.  I cannot say the same thing about crab cakes (even though I love them too).  This grilled onion with blue cheese is the perfect thing to serve with a grilled steak and asparagus.  In fact, it was the first meal that I serveed here in our new home in Kansas.

This is more of a method, and less of a recipe.  It truly depends on how many people you want to serve.  If you cannot find Vidalia onions, use another variety of sweet onion.  You will want to slice the onion fairly thick because you want the onion to stay together on the grill.  If they do not, no worries, they still taste delicious if they have fallen apart.  I love Maytag blue cheese and use it whenever I can.  It is a crumbly American blue cheese and you can find it in most grocery stores.

    I made these the other night and they were FABULOUS! I used gorgonzola cheese and threw in some sliced zucchini- plus I drizzled them with white wine when I finished them on the grill. I can’t believe how amazing these were! I was so blown away I wrote them up on my blog and linked back to your original recipe. I hope you don’t mind! Let me know if you do and I’ll pull the post. I think only 5 people read my blog, so I doubt it’ll go viral any time soon! :)
    Anyhoo- thanks for the great idea- and I LOVE your blog.
