I really like to cook with onions. It makes everything have a great taste, especially meats. I put it in meatloaf and also when I make tuna fish. I love to cook up some onion with green peppers whenever I make sausage. So good. What do you cook up with onions?

I love onions and right now I am cooking my lunch. Get a towel because your mouth is going to start watering right about NOW.... First I took a big white onion and cut it into small quarter inch pieces and brown them in Olive Oil. As they start to turn brown but not burnt I add some hamburg and let that start browning as well. Next I add tomato paste and then chili powder, letting them cook for a minute or two. Then I add a half can of diced tomatoes if I don't have any fresh tomatoes. I let this simmer. While it is simmering I cook some macaroni noodles or rice depending on how I feel. Today it's noodles. Once the noodles are just about ready I put them in the skillet with everything else and let it thicken a bit. I then pour it over Nachos. Oh, gotta go it's ready and I'm hungry.

I started cooking like this for my son when he was just little so he kinda grew up with it and now eats spicey foods and even when he's not home he asks me to save him some. :)

Nope. I wouldn't even think to put onions in the mac n cheese. Not to mention the kids would freak out if I did.

I can throw onions in anything, that's why it's the best veg to cook with in my opinion. I love to add them to potatoes of any form. Usually when I make up a meat based one skillet meal their in there...anything.

I use onions in and on just about everything I cook. I'm having ham and cheese sandwiches tonight and of course it has onions on it too. Onions and garlic goes in just about everything.

I love onions in my tuna also and my chicken salad or potato salad. I also add it into the meat when I make hamburgers, I'm making cubed steak tonight with bell pepper and onions. My son isn't much on onions but if I cut them small enough he doesn't even know they are there!

I have to do the same thing for my daughter - cut the onions really tiny.

Hi Shar, I also like to put green pepper and onions in lots of things I'm cooking. Sometimes my husband tells me to slow down with the onion and green pepper . I guess I like it more then he does. I love the smell of it cooking and the flavor it adds to the food . I add them to steak, chicken, and eggs . I also put them in Tuna salad, and Chicken salad. That's just to name a few .

Hi ya Shar19 As my kids don't really like onions I don't use them in cooking a lot. If I do I grate them so they don't even notice them or they are too small for them to pick out!! LOL . Like you I usually add them to meat!

Hi Shar, I don't eat onions, though I add them to soups/curries to improve the taste - they are really sweeter with onions.

I use onions in a lot of things. I use them in eggs when making an omelet or scrambled eggs. I like them in spaghetti, meatloaf, tacos, chili, and things using ground beef. I also like to cook up cabbage and onions as a side with pork or sausage for dinner.
