35 Onion Recipes To Try Tonight

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

Caramelized, pickled, or fried, onions are some of our favorite ingredients to add to any dish. They lend brightness, spice, zip, and a sweet savoriness that’s basically impossible to mimic. 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 are often stealing the show in our favorite meals. We could write entire poems about French onion soup and all the ways we love to eat this rich, umami-packed classic. Instead, we developed tons of ways to add the traditional flavor to appetizers, casseroles, 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 (a.k.a. scallions) are essentially immature onions that have yet to form a bulb. They are so much more than a garnish to our favorite Asian dishes or roasts, especially in scallion pancakes, tteokbokki, and pork and shrimp dumplings.

We can’t even bring up onions without including mention of the crispy, crunchy bloomin’ onion! Whether you prefer one that’s baked or an air-fried bloomin’ onions (or even bloomin’ onion bites), you gotta make our take on Outback’s sauce for endless dipping.
