Tennessee Onions, in the centre of Southern cooking, epitomise the magic of transforming food. Succulent Vidalia onions, warmed by the oven, become fragrant and tender at the beginning of the dish.

It is a complement to any dish that needs a little something more.

If you want to enjoy Tennessee Onions’ Southern charm without having to worry about gluten, concentrate on how simple its natural components are. This recipe is virtually inherently gluten-free because onions, cheese, and spices don’t normally contain gluten. Cross-contamination during processing can happen, so make sure the cheese and spices are gluten-free if you have sensitive stomachs. If you would want the onions to be a little bit saucier, use cornflour or a gluten-free flour blend in place of ordinary flour.


The flavour and texture of newly baked goods can be restored with a little baking time at 350°F until warm and bubbling.
