It’s always a delight to receive yummy recipes from one of the food companies. This week, I got a few recipes from the makers of French’s French Fried Onions. I don’t know about you, but I remember eating the onions as a topper on many a casserole dish growing up. They are certified kosher and delicious. I think it would be fine to substitute non-dairy creamer and make the recipes pareve. That would be a decision you would make. Personally, I would make a dairy meal and just enjoy the recipes as they are. One of the recipes would make for great Thanksgiving stuffing. Visit www.frenchsfoods.com.
