28. It's not something I put in deviled eggs

Hard boiled egg yolks, dill pickles, mayonnaise with an olive on top. When feeling wild, I add a dash of dijon mustard. Origin: Deep South, where mayonnaise is one of the four basic food groups.

And always mayo, never Miracle Whip. And never, ever onions.

I have had with raw onion before where it gave a nice lil kick and I have also had with caramelized onions (had a french onion soup flavor) and both were good. You do whatever the devil you want

5. my better half....

.... mixes together the egg yolks, mayo, and sweet pickle relish. That's it, and they are about the best deviled eggs I've ever had.

As for the ingredients you are using, if the celery is not going to be cooked, why cook the onions? I believe cooked onions would detract rather than enhance the overall taste. My opinion only. Good luck.

60. definitely get some even if the only thing you

ever do with is make a Cajun stir fry, which is a basic stir fry combo (I use fresh okra, squash, purple onion, red bell pepper, celery, garlic and whatever kind of meat I have - pork, beef or chicken. When I can get it, I'll use an Andouille sausage with the casing removed so it can be crumbled. Prep it up like you would a normal stir fry.
If you have never stir fried okra, slice it in discs as thin as you can. I toss it in the hot wok with the bell pepper then remove when they are not quite done. Even if you do not think you like okra, this is a whole different game. Then I cook the rest of the veggies, remove them from the pan and shake some cajun spices all over them. Cajun seasoning can be pretty hot depending on where you get it, so adjust for taste

Then I cook the meat, and shake more spice over that. When the meat is done, add the veg back in and add Worcestershire sauce; not a whole lot just enough to flavor it. You don't want the dish to be floating in it.
Serve with hot rice, of course

I discovered this in an employee cafeteria. We had a cook to order guy who did stir frys and a couple of times a week he did the cajun one. I watched him do it and decided I could do that.

It's necessary for gumbo and other things. I make chicken gumbo because we are not fond of the seafood

25. it does intensify the raw onion flavor so

you may use less than usual
works with garlic too.. a micro plane for small batch, or food processor for large
i learned this with a marinara (large batch) for a fine vegetarian upscale italian restaurant years ago, the sauce had not bites of onion throughout but a mellow onion flavor...

I just like a hint, so I shave them very, very thin and just drop in a whisper of onion. I don't think I would put them in deviled eggs.

37. Takes quite a bit of raw onion

to be too strong in deviled eggs. But then., maybe if they were carmelized...

I use onion in just about everything cooked or raw. But I like raw garlic so I might not be a good guage for too uch on those!

I trust they will turn out well!

A good soak or rinse in cold water will mellow the raw onion bite. I like green onion in my deviled eggs but a little white or red onion would do in a pinch.
