  1. You never use fresh onions, do you? I only ever use flakes for really fast recipes, or deviled eggs. They don't have the same flavor.

  2. I bet these would make a great Sloppy Joe-style sandwich! I love that they could be made vegetarian rather easily for the herbivores in our family and can feed a crowd for summer BBQ's!
