they are shallots charlie.some people call them torpedo shallots & i think they are also called banana shallots.officially they are echalion shallots.i use them a lot because they are milder & sweeter than a lot of other types of onions & shallots.they also hold their shape well if you cook them whole,so they look pretty in the finished dish!.all the supermarkets over here sell them.
i was fairly new to dc when i posted the photo's last year & i posted the recipe in "food photo's"....ooooops!! anyway here's the link...enjoy!!

I'm going to try a Ground Beef Kheema recipe I saw on Food Network. I may substitute ground turkey for the beef. It's going to get very humid today so I want something fast that didn't require a lot of hovering over a hot pot. Served with brown rice and green stuff.

Beautiful, Harry. Very nice looking dish.
And that steak is HUGE! I don't think I've ever seen both halves together before.

We're having pizza tonight. I think it'll be topped with sautéed criminis and onion. A frosty Samuel Adams Boston Lager will help wash it all down.

I was going to make meatloaf but forgot to take the hamburger out of the freezer this morning. As I was in the fridge getting a glass of milk for my "after school snack" I remembered I have a small ham. That I can bake easily and we'll have macaroni and cheese and salads.
