35 onion recipes to try tonight

Not all onions are one size fits all, but all are incredibly tasty. Whether you have shallots, scallions, or a variety of red or yellow onions, we’ve got recipes for you that are perfect for the onion-obsessed. Want tips for choosing the best onion for your meal? We’ve got a handy guide to choosing the right onion varieties for any dish.

Caramelized, pickled, or fried onions are some of our favorite ingredients to add to any dish. They give brightness, zest, zing and a sweet taste that is virtually impossible to imitate. Having a jar of pickled red onions or caramelized onions on hand is a must in our kitchens, especially when it comes to topping tacos and burgers.

Onions often steal the show in our favorite meals. We could write whole poems about French onion soup and all the ways we eat this rich, umami-packed classic. Instead, we’ve developed countless ways to add traditional flavor to appetizers, stews, and even burgers. Our French Onion Mac and Cheese, French Onion Chicken Meatballs, and French Onion Chicken are sure to be some of your new favorite weeknight meals.

Green onions (also called scallions) are essentially unripe onions that have yet to form a bulb. They’re so much more than a garnish for our favorite Asian dishes or roasts, especially in scallion pancakes, tteokbokki, and pork and shrimp dumplings.

We can’t even bring up onions without mentioning the crispy, crunchy blooming onion! Whether you prefer a baked or air-fried bloomin’ onions (or even bloomin’ onion bites), you’ve got to take our take on Outback’s sauce for endless dipping.
