Chives - New Ideas Needed

They are very prolific this year despite the crappy weather. I have used them in tuna and egg dishes, salads and such. Any other ideas?

Thanks!

Snipped onto an omlette. Or avocado. Or mashed potatoes. Or onto sliced tomatoes.

Use them with fresh salmon, trout, shrimp or chicken, add to cream cheese, add to sour cream (for stuffed potatoes or as topping with baked potatoes, etc.), add to roasted potatoes, add to soups, use them in dips...

Chopped by handfuls, dried in a paper bag and stored for later use! They are excellent in soups and stews.

Great ideas! I use them to replace onions in lots of things, will def try some of these. Never heard of drying them in a paper bag, will have to try it.

Forgot about baked potatoes, may be what's for dinner....

For my very favorite mashed potatoes, cook your potatoes as you normally do for mashed potatoes. Instead of using butter and milk to mash them, use sour cream and chives. Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray, put potatoes in the dish, and bake at about 350 for around 20 minutes.
