Residential Dining Welcomes The National Onion Association

Penn State Campus Residential Dining, along with the National Onion Association, invites students to participate in a special lunch and dinner event that will have a blooming selection of various onion-based dishes. The specialties will be served at all five campus dining halls on Tuesday, April 4.

Students are invited to try the new beef cheesesteak with bacon onion jam and brie cheese as well as fried potato chips with sour cream and onion dip all day Tuesday, April 4. For lunch, all dining halls will be serving sweet onion, olive and anchovy pissaladiére. The thin pizza-like crust piled with sweet onions is sure to have you coming back for seconds. An onion-inspired soup and baby spinach and roasted red onion salad will also be available during lunch hours. For dinner, all dining halls will feature a caramelized onion and white bean chicken, Vidalia & red onion soup and orzo risotto. These three onion specialties are bursting with layers of flavor, a meal you don’t want to miss.

Penn State Residential Dining along with the National Onion Association hope to provide students with a “tear-jerking” dining experience — the happy kind of tears. There will also be Onion Association mints given out to students, so no reason to worry about your breath after indulging in the assorted onion delicacies.

Lunch is generally served between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and dinner is served between 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. However, these scheduled times change upon location. For more information on campus dining hours and locations please visit:
