Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Rating: 4.5 stars 366
This delicious side dish is packed with nutrition. Sweet potatoes, onions and almonds are powerhouses of antioxidants and other nutrients -- in fact, almonds are among the most nutrient-dense foods, containing high concentrations of vitamins and minerals per calorie. Plus, olive oil and almonds contain monounsaturated fat -- the good type.

An exciting, cool and refreshing side salad that goes great with grilled meat. Fantastic for get-togethers. You WILL be asked for the recipe! Reserve a piece of sliced tomato and a few cilantro sprigs for garnish.

Grilled Onions and Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 60
My family loves these tasty potatoes. There are never leftovers. Once the potatoes are all tucked in their foil packets, they can wait overnight to be grilled the next day. Great for camping. Check foil packets at 15 and 30 minutes to ensure they are not burning. May require a few more minutes to ensure all is cooked through.

Caramelized Onions on the Grill

Rating: 4.5 stars 74
These are absolutely melt in your mouth delicious! You can make them on the grill or in the oven. Even friends of ours that don't care for onions loved these! I would recommend that you use 1 large onion for every 2 people. Some people want one whole onion to themselves so you might want to make some extra! They are also good heated up the next day but we rarely have any extra!

Midwest Salisbury Steak
Rating: 4.5 stars 354

I was tired of boring, tasteless Salisbury steak recipes, so I created this one myself. Use good ground sirloin, and it'll tastes wonderful and you won't have any grease to drain from the patties once they've browned. Serve over mashed potatoes, egg noodles, or rice. Simply delightful!
