    4 small Vidalia onions
    2 tablespoons chicken broth
    2 tablespoons dry white wine
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
    1 tablespoon seasoning blend
    1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
    1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
    4 tablespoons "Move Over Butter" or other reduced fat butter substitute
    4 ounces Low Fat Swiss Cheese, cut into pieces*


Peel onions; cut a thin slice from bottom of each one, forming a base for onions to stand on. Scoop out a shallow hole in top of each onion.
Place each onion on a 12-inch square of heavy-duty aluminum foil; wrap sides of each one, forming a basin for liquid. Allow some overhang of foil, leaving tops of onions exposed.

Stir together broth and next 3 ingredients; drizzle evenly over onions. Stir together seasoning blend, garlic salt, and lemon pepper. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of seasoning mixture over each onion. Top each with 1 tablespoon butter substitute.

Press foil edges together; gently twist to seal. Place on a baking sheet.

Bake at 400° for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Gently unseal foil edges, leaving onions and liquid in foil cups. Top onions evenly with cheese.

Broil 5 1/2 inches from heat 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.

*Any reduced fat cheese may be substituted for the swiss.
