I have 20 or more pounds of onions. Have been chopping them and putting them in the freezer. Just have a great many more. Golldangey! The discount store that I go to when at my Pa's house had them out in the trash! So I asked permission and brought the case home. Had already purchased 28 onions at 10 cents each. Hence I am looking for recipes to use them or shall give to food bank. Still, we are not so rich right now. How would you use them? Thank you! May not be able to look 'til tomorrow. (How the heck do you spell tomorrow?)

German Zwiebelkuchen (Onion Pie)

Submitted by: Bill Whitford 
Zwiebelkuchen is an onion pie from Swabia, in south-central Germany. It is a special time of year, in the fall, when the mom & pop winemakers will open a BasinWirtschaft in their barn or garage. They serve the new wine, fresh zwiebelkuchen, and perhaps some wurst, for a minimal fee. A few tables are set up, and they are open when they have time to serve. To indicate they are serving, they will hang a straw broom over the doorway. The combination of the onions and the 'green ' wine can have explosive consequences later on!

I have this saved. I haven't tried this but it sounds good. It could be a main dish, I think (based on the protein level).

This delicious pie has a buttery cracker crumb crust and is stuffed with sweet onions. It is superb along side any barbequed meat -- especially pork.

I used to live in Lakewood for a short spell before moving to Denver on Lowery Air Force Base....just thought I'd throw that out there Graduted from GW ;-) but as you're talking about onions. I got a dehydrator (a new one today) been a few years since I had the book I was reading tonight, it talked about dehydrating and making vegetable powders, very interesting reading...I always wondered how onion and garlic powder was I know. I'd totally be trying this step at some point, because I've never dehydrated veggies before. And this is the insert of what it said..(just if you're curious) Vegetables maybe pureed, dried as leathers(like fruit roll ups) and then powdered for making juices, soup bases, dips, salad dressings, or baby foods. Dehydrate vegetable leather until very brittle. Immediately powder small amounts at a time in a dry blender. Brittle, sliced or chopped vegetable can also be powdered. Powders must be stored in airtight containers to avoid clumping. Reconstituted powdered tomatoes, for example, make great tomato sauce or pizza sauce. Remember powders have a vert concentrated flavor.

Germans traditionally eat onion pie during the fall, but you'll want to eat this authentic dish all year round.

Potatoes and Onions

Mushrooms, onions and celery are cooked in a fat-free vinaigrette until the dressing is absorbed and the vegetables tender. This yummy concoction is then spooned over warm, cubed, cooked potatoes. Delicious.

Beefy French onion soup is made in the slow cooker, then topped with the traditional slice of toasted French bread and a savory mixture of four cheeses, then broiled until browned and bubbling. It's fun to let people assemble their own bowls, too.

I thought I saved the recipe. It was from 2 weeks ago. An onion casserole. Hopefully someone will have it.
