Picky People Coming for Dinner, What to Make?

Reester | Jul 26, 2014 06:43 AM

I know one of my friends that is coming doesn't like onions. I briefly mentioned that I might make tacos and I got a lukewarm response. (I make a killer taco bar with homemade salsa and Emeril's recipe for taco beef but I'm afraid if I go through the effort, they won't like it.)

We've had dinner with these friends before and we've always had pizza. I'm thinking hamburgers but I don't have a grill. My grill was on its last legs last summer. I threw it away and haven't replaced it.

I know they like mushrooms and most vegetables (carrots, peas, peppers) but not onions. I know they like hot wings.

Do you have a recipe for a baked pasta without onions? The recipes I love for lasagna and ziti have onions.

Any other main course suggestions for a casual dinner party/game night? Something for somewhat picky eaters and to feed seven people? Can I bust out my George Foreman and make hamburgers on it or will that be lame? There will be four adults and three growing boys.

Thank you.
