Expert Tips

You can use 2 tablespoons dried minced onion in place of the fresh onion.

Look in the frozen-food case for bags of frozen chopped onions. Keep them on hand for fuss-free chopped onion.

Newer varieties of frozen corn are available. Look for extra-sweet Green Giant Select® gold & white corn.
