I love fried onions.
I could eat a plate of fried onions. Not onion blossoms or anything fancy dancy like that.
Just a couple of nice onions sliced, in a pan with some garlic and some kinda grease. Mebbe one sweet onion in the mix. But really plain old fried onions do the trick.
They could go on a burger, near a piece of grilled chicken or fish, on top of a heap of roasted veggies, on a sandwich with almost anything or nothing else. Good bread helps if it's fried onions on a sandwich. Solid bread. Rye is good.
Oh, and don't slice my onions too thin. I like to be able to see them.
Do you do fried onions?
Do you love some other veggie beyond common sense?
I just did yellow taters, a big vidalia onion, and mushrooms in a bit of olive oil and garlic.
little taters? big taters? fingerling taters?
onions, garlic and taters
cubed, so the shrooms dint overcook, but smallish to start with...
that sounds all right - was it good?
everything in the pan at once? or staged?
(should I ask about mise en place?)
I like fried onions. Well, sauteed slow onions. Olive oil, two or three regular onions medium sliced and somewhat chopped; after 30 or 40 minutes, a fat tsp. of stone ground mustard, little salt, maybe a squoush of lemone.
Lemon's always good with onion.
This all came up as Set was commenting that he didn't get any onions the other night. Well, he only cut up one. Why would I think one fried/sauteed onion was for sharing? harrumph
He stepped up tonight. Two big onions - one of them a Vidalia.
Even a dip would be nice.
Fried onions as an ingredient in dip? with dip? on dip?
You know; like garlic or onion dip. LOL
staged, with whole seed mustard, and fresh dill...
Fried onions with a bit of red and green pepper and lots of Frank's Hot Sauce is to die for. Great on burgers or just about any other way you choose to ingest them. The smell is fantastic too.
Any kind of onion will do. White, yellow, sweet or whatever is available. mmmmmmmm
I've done roasted garlic dip. Never thought about using fried onions. Will mull.
another mustard mention
hadn't really thought about it before
I love fried onions over baked liver, or on top of mashed potatoes - mmmhhh
mmm Frank's Hot Sauce
I've always got some of that around
I even keep some in the fridge at work
I think there should be onion fests around here somewhere. I know Ontario has a lot of garlic festivals, but onion fest? nevah hoid of one
liver and onions! another winner!
I like that straight up or done Prussian style - with apples also cooked in. Sorta sweet n sour.
