It's April and the Texas 10-15 Sweet Onions are back in season! This is an all time favorite of mine. You can use this same recipe with the Georgia Vadalia and the Washington Walla Walla onions.
2 Jumbo 10-15 Sweet Onions
2 ounces of butter
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Peel the onions, remove the stem, trim the top and bottom of the onion slightly so it will sit flat (without rolling) on either end. Slice the onions in half. Place the onion halves in baking dish with the round end to the bottom. Add water and top the onions with all the ingredients above. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes and serve.
This serves 4 and it make a great substitute for a baked potato.
Texas A&M University spent 10 years perfecting the Texas 1015. Here is some information I found on a Texas Aggie website you may find interesting:
"Texas 1015 SuperSweet Onions - The Sweetest In Its Class
The 1015 SuperSweet Onion, named after its recommended planting date of October 15, was introduced by the South Texas onion industry in 1985 after 10 years of research. It is the sweetest, mildest onion anywhere in the world.
Texas 1015 SuperSweets are available from mid-April through May and are predominantly single-centered, making them ideal for large, uniform-size onion rings. They also grow to softball-size proportions, often weighing in at one pound or more each and measuring over four inches in diameter. The optimum-size eating onion - in terms of mildness and sweetness - measures three to four inches in diameter and weighs 14 to 16 ounces.
Great Taste and Healthful, Too
Texas sweet onions not only taste great, they're good for you, too. Onions have naturally occurring compounds that have been reported to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol levels in the blood. They also contain quercetin, an antioxidant that has been found to inhibit the growth of some cancer cells. Another healthful bonus: Onions are low in calories and are a good source of vitamin C."
