2 veg box deliveries back to back with 4 onions. I have EIGHT onions. Going to dice and fry and freeze some, any idea for others (aside from the obvious French onion soup)

Now the weather's gone to shite, I'm planning on making a big vat of chicken casserole this weekend, plenty of onions and carrot.

Sausages and onion gravy?
If you're feeling adventurous - onion bhaji?

They last bloody ages in the crisper box in the fridges, week and weeks, no need to rush to use them.

Blend them with a splash of water, then freeze. Blend either alone or with tomatoes. They make a great base for curries.

Stuff them

KingIrving Sat 30-Sep-17 00:11:48

Boil them for 10 min. when cooled but in half. Put them in an oiled baking tray. Cover each with a mix of breadcrumbs/garlic/parsley/salt and pepper/parmesan and bake them for 40 min.
or my favourite salad: tomatoes , chickpeas, parsley, onions ., crystal salt and olive oil

I've done this recipe - also did it with larger onions and added the bacon into the stuffing and added breadcrumbs too.

Rinceoir Sat 30-Sep-17 02:08:28

Am I the only one who gets 8 onions most weeks?!

In my opinion onions go well in practically everything. Base for soup, curry, stews, pasta dishes. Go great chunky in tray bakes, and add a flavour to roasts.

I've just realized I apparently eat an ungodly amount of onions.

Oceangirl82 Sat 30-Sep-17 03:00:57

I am with you Rinceoir, lots of onions here, we are in the South Seas and on many islands you can only get onions and garlic and of course coconut 😅 I use onions to pad out meals, we use lots of tinned veg!

KingIrving Sat 30-Sep-17 03:03:32

Onions are yummy! And sooooo good for you. I eat them daily. And they don't give me bad breath

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 30-Sep-17 04:03:02

I get through about 8 a week too.

But they do last a very long time. Just keep them in the fridge until you need them.

tigermousewoman Sat 30-Sep-17 07:28:18

I would just keep them - in the dark they last ages and ages

Rinceoir Sat 30-Sep-17 07:35:25

In terms of shopping mishaps it’s not too bad at least. I recently accidentally ordered a kilo of dill. Was fun trying to use that!

Oceangirl82 Sat 30-Sep-17 07:36:39

On my previous post forgot to say it is not recommended onions be refrigerated.

MelanieCheeks Sat 30-Sep-17 07:42:34

I've used onions this week in:

stuffing for roast chicken
veg soup
onion gravy for sausage and mash
stir fry
lamb tagine

BankWadger Sat 30-Sep-17 07:50:30

Homity pie. I curse discovering this right before I had to give up cheese as it's lush.

Katsite Sat 30-Sep-17 07:55:27

Pissaladiere, a lovely Mediterranean type of onion tarte.

StaySexyDontGetMurdered Sat 30-Sep-17 08:01:59

I think they're more popularly known as blooming onion.
They are bloody delicious though.
