Hey /ck/, here's one for you-
Everyone knows donuts are bad for you and salads are good for you, right? Think about this- if you were stranded on a desert island, which could you live on longer- donuts or salad? Since you could live on donuts much longer than you could on salad, donuts are obv much healthier for you than salad. Ergo, donuts are health food!

Hello /ck/, got any croquette recipes?
I've got sweet potatoes and regular potatoes, as well as bacon and mushrooms, panko crumbs, etc. What can do I do to combine all these into croquette-y goodness? I need to serve about 4 people as well.
Lets make this an appetizer general. Share your favorite recipes, bitch at each-other over who's recipe is the best, etc.
Varieties of onions for cooking

What recommendations do people have for choosing one variety of onion over another to cook with, and why?
I confess I don't notice a lot of difference in cooked onion flavors, whether I use yellow or white or big or small or Vidalias or whatever. (I never cook with the purple ones, as they seem intended for raw dishes like salads or sandwiches). I'm not sure if the choice just doesn't matter that much, or if it's just my pleb unawareness of the differences. I usually favor relatively cheap onions, which at my usual grocer means a 3 pound bag of what they just call "cooking onions," brown exterior and white interior, about 2-3 inch (5-7.5 cm) diameter. The drawback is they take longer to peel than large ones, for a given amount of onion.
Typical dishes I use onions in, if it makes a difference:
A simple stir-fry, where I cook coarsely chopped onions 2-5 minutes.
With eggs, where I'll cook them finely chopped until translucent.
Sauteed until a bit brown to add to a lentil/rice dish.
In a vegetable soup, where I add them to water or broth early, so they might cook 30 or 40 minutes.
