Split some chicken breast for stuffing. Stuff with a mix of thyme, cream cheese and layer in scallions cut about 1 inch long.
Dust with flour and brown then finish up in a 325 oven.

I throw them on a baking sheet with some olive oil and a tiny bit of salt and roast them at a high heat until they are wilted and brown and eat them as a side dish. Or I grill them. I often buy a couple of bunches at at time because I gobble them up so quickly.

Probably the one thing I've never roasted. On my list for tomorrow. Thanks

I hope you enjoy them! I just remembered that I also love scallion pancakes. Here's mrslarkin's recipe: <a href="http://food52.com/recipes/17000-scallion-pancakes" target="_blank">http://food52.com/recipes/17000-scallion-pancakes</a> And mine (which is for ramp pancakes, but green onions will work fine here): <a href="http://food52.com/recipes/17072-ramp-sesame-pancakes-with-miso-dipping-sauce" target="_blank">http://food52.com/recipes/17072-ramp-sesame-pancakes-with-miso-dipping-sauce</a>

Just freeze them and use them later in eggs, frittatas, soups, stews, sandwiches, etc.

This Momofuku scallion and ginger sauce changed my life (no really it did!). It's great to have on hand and I avoid lots of chopping by using my food processor (pulsing just a few times). I usually serve it with noodles or rice and chicken poached in a ginger/scallion/garlic scented broth but it works beautifully on tofu. http://www.saveur.com/article...

Thanks, arcane. I'd actually wanted to try it and totally forgot. Maybe the perfect time to give it a go.

You can always chop and freeze in a bag OR keep the scallions with roots in a cup of water by the window, they'll keep growing.

So many great suggestions. Thank you! I may try to keep some of them growing, if only to experiment.

Arcane, what kind of soy sauce do you use? I see te recipe calls for light soy...

Sorry, not tracking the conversation! I din;t notice it said 'light" in the recipe -- I use organic tamari. You might want to try a bit and season to your taste. In fact I'm about to eat some leftover momofuku noodles and chicken right now.... Let me know what you think!
