Types of Sweet onions
There are many varieties of sweet onions you can find everywhere. Popular varieties are Walla Walla, Vidella, and the 1015 onions. These onions cook up much sweeter than your normal yellow and white onion. They also tend to caramelize better due to the higher sugar content inside of them. Sweet onions are more perishable than white, yellow, or even red onions so it is best to keep these in the refrigerator.
Grilled onions go great on a burger, or with a grilled steak.
