Steak, blue cheese, and salad are a combo we never get tired of eating, and it'll be on your table in less than an hour. This dish gets a spin from the honey-caramelized onions; the natural sugars in the honey speed up the caramelization process. Croutons from a bag are a thing of the past. Once you learn how easy it is to make your own (and a great way to use up stale bread), you'll never go back.
