any recipies that use lots of onions?

my parents gave me a 5lb bag of onions and I know I’m not going to be able to use them all before they spoil. any recipies that use lots of onions?
How about eating just the onion?

Preheat oven to 350F. Cut the ends off of the onion, then in half. Mix bread crumbs with olive oil just enough for them to get mangled up. Add ogreano. Then mix it until firm. Put some butter on the onions, then the bread crumbs. Then put some paramesen cheese on top. Bake for 30-45 mins.
Slice the onions, cook on low heat in olive oil until they carmelize. Toss in a dash of rice wine vinegar and some salt and pepper. Chop up a cup of fresh cranberries and saute those too. Let that cool a bit, then mix it up with some grated romano or mozza cheese. Spoon all this onto melba toast (or your choice of crackers) and bake under a broiler until the cheese bubbles.

Any alternative to using eggs when breading?

I’m allergic to eggs and really want to cook up some chicken parmesan. Does anyone know of a substitue to dipping in egg when breading?
Part of the purpose of egg is to have an ‘adhesive’ for the breading to stick to. You could try something like buttermilk. Its thicker than milk so it’ll help bind the breading to the chicken.

Or you could very thinly rub some shortening on the chicken for the same effect.

Personally, I skip the whole thing. I keep my chicken wet (from washing before hand) and just plop the pieces into a ziploc with my breading. The ziploc gives you the ability to vigorously manipulate the bread crumbs into the meat. It keeps the meat coated well, just don’t over handle the breaded pieces a lot before cooking so as not to knock off the breading.
