One Christmas extended family had a Christmas gift exchange, one uncle had made a “gag gift”, it was a piggy bank with pennies, I got it, he felt bad but to everyone’s suprise, I was estatic. I was 5 and collecting coins, a piggy bank filled with loose change was the best present.

You fool! That’s an Aggie 1015Y super sweet onion! You’ve given him the taste of the good stuff and doomed us all!

I have a theory that most people’s favorite food is actually onion. We like them sweet, spicy, pickled, and in breakfast omelettes, lunch sandwiches, and alongside dinner proteins. There isn’t much that isn’t improved or at least complemented by an onion.

In my mind its not cooking unless it involves cutting an onion

Old Ukrainian recipe: fry garlic and onions in a pan with butter, then decide what to have for dinner

Same in the Philippines, but with oil instead of butter. Almost every dish there starts with garlic and onion.

Add carrots and you’re 2/3rds through lost good French and Italian meals too.

Agreed nothing adds flavor layers to a dish like an onion can

But just raw dogging onion sounds like hell.

As a kid when I saw the movie Holes, I was so tempted to start eating onions like apples, like they do in that scene at the oasis. I also went home after the movie and dug a big hole in the backyard because I was a fucking weird ass. Still am. Never ate an onion like that, but damn they made em look tasty.

When I chop onions I will just grab a few pieces to snack on raw while I cook the rest.

Vidallia onions are decent raw. We put big 1/2 thick slabs on burgers that way. Carmel probably wouldn’t hurt in the OP’s case either.

I would add potato to that list. People fucking love potatoes on lots of forms.

Love the taste of 'em, but onions also give me awful gag reflex to the point I need to have them removed from my food. Otherwise I risk vomiting on the spot D:

For real. Waiting until Halloween to introduce them to the deliciousness of caramelized onion…

Just this morning, my 7yo kid asked for a side of crispy fried onions to eat with his chocolate croissant. This is not the first time.

It’s even more hilarious to me because both my kids hate onions in their food. But crispy fried onions? Irresistible!

Same. For me it’s a texture and appearance thing. I just don’t like the look of cooked onions.

But the flavor of onions is great to me so if they’re raw red or sweet onions or cooked into something but undetectable I love emm.

I feel this way about a lot of food textures and what does/doesn’t go together.

Could be the same for your kids.
