I went to Kroger this evening, and they had just stocked some very nice, and very large sweet onions. It is a bit early for Texas 1015 onions, and nothing indicated that they were. I'll just have to see if they really are sweet, or not. I bought six of them.

Don't temp us like that. Make something and post it. I can make a good dish with winter onions here (I shoveled today in Michigan. Snow, not onions, but that's why our onions are imports in January) They're always better fresh. Don't let us down!

I have some ideas. I need to make something artsy, since MG is judging. :whistling:

Its occurred to me that onions aren't the most photogenic of subjects as they tend to fall in the browny beige category of food. They need pimping up. Leeks, Spring onions and chives are prettier.


How many bowls of French Onion Soup can you handle? :laugh:

It could make judging easier, I suppose. Or not...

For the record, I have no issues with the judge making recipes for their challenge.This issue has arisen in the past, and my response is still the same. It helps to stimulate ideas, keeps the thread active in the early days, adds more recipes to the forum but most importantly does not exclude the judge from the next round of the competition leaving them feeling excluded by winning.
The only condition I have is that they can not select themselves as the winner.

Air Fryer Onion Rings.
Using an air fryer lets you make delicious food that’s quite healthy, but there’s a bit of extra work involved. Still, delicious, and I don’t have to feel too bad about eating a lot of them.
Those look scrumptious. I've never been able to get mine crispy in the air fryer. Are you going to post the recipe?
