]Over the years, families pass down their favorite recipes to be used for special occasions, family gatherings or simply an everyday meal at home. In the following recipes from the National Onion Association, onions take center stage in some favorite preparations: timeless onion soup, flavorful onion dip, interesting onion bloom and best ever onion rings!
Onions are a key ingredient for virtually every type of cuisine around the world. Whether diced, sliced, sauted or caramelized, onions add zest to all type of soups, entres and side dishes.
Onions have long been the star in rich onion soups. Unlike the traditional French Onion Soup, Classic Onion Soup calls for chicken broth as its base. Caramelized onions provide the buttery sweet flavor for the soup.
Onion dip is a classic recipe for potlucks and picnics. Creamy Onion Dip is an easy-to-prepare dip that compliments a selection of fresh vegetables, breads and crackers. A hollow onion makes the perfect container for this dip.
Watch out mashed potatoes and rice, Herb Baked Onion Bloom is an appealing and interesting side dish. Try serving it with grilled chicken or steak. Experiment by adding your favorite herbs to the bloom.
Best Ever Onion Rings can be prepared in two different ways - traditionally deep fat fried or baked. The batter is the same for both preparation methods!
