    Does it exist? Me and my mate were talking about it and we couldn't think of a single savoury thing that you can't put onions in. It's annoying me a lot because onions can't go with everything.. surely?!

    Nah I tried to argue those, and apparently, according to my mate, they're 'meant to be sweet'.

    Maybe ********.

    There's not much they don't go with, after all they don't have a particularly strong taste after cooking so you can disguise them in pretty much anything. They would be detrimental to some foods with very simple flavours but as long as you like onions they'd certainly not make any savoury food inedible.

    That's just it, I think...

    Sausage rolls
    Sausage rolls as in the meat wrapped in puff pastry, or sausages in a roll? :p:
    Assuming the former, next time you're in your local supermarket have a look at the ingredients in sausage rolls. You'll find that they often do have onion in them, though usually in the form of onion powder (basically just onions that have been dried and ground up) rather than chopped fresh onion.

    I've had onions with toast before, admittedly not just onions but onions and with other veg and tomatoes, ratatouille on toast basically. You could probably also have toast with some kind of onion chutney and it wouldn't be so bad, especially with cheese as well.

    I don't mind the taste of onions but hate the texture and would never put them in anything I'm making

    Love onions. Would happily eat them in just about anything.

    The other thing is that they don't have too strong a flavour when cooked and 'bulk out' things like bolgnaise sauce, otherwise it'd just be mince and tomato.

    Sorry to spoil your theory.

    Though just onion and toast would probably be quite strange, although a quick google for 'onion toast' bring back lots of results.

    In an egg... Which hasn't been cracked.

    HA! I WIN.

    You'd also struggle putting onions in crips xD



    But seriously... Hmm I dunno. Onions are the best. Along with chillies ... Chilli powder goes in pretty much everything that I cook (savoury)

    Right, I had my suspicions that this thread would just end up being a bit silly and there's not a lot from the past 24 hours or so that's made me think otherwise. Thread closed.
