Onions (Allium cepa) are bulbs of vegetables that are often used in the Royal Dinner. It is a word trim of "minion." They are said to go good with macaroni, but that sounds ridiculous. Garlic is similar, but is smellier and kills vampires. They are loved by Shrek and his species due to both ogres and onions having layers, though Donkey doesn't care about Shrek and Onions' similarities.
