Creamed Pearl Onions
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min.
Yes Amy you can use frozen pearl onions. Just defrost them first. Set in a collander in the sink. I tested this recipe 2 weeks ago, turned out beautifully. After they sat for a bit, they became a little "thick" so I just popped back on the stove for a quick minute and dribbled in some extra chicken broth. My girlfriend had the same issue, and she used a couple tablespoons of white wine. Will be on our Thanksgiving table next week. I also added a bit more than a teaspoon of fresh minced thyme, purely a personal preference.
Can you use frozen onions instead?
This was great! I grew up having pearled onions at Christmas. My Mom passed away this year and I was bound and determined to make these. Thanks for sharing the recipe it was awesome and brought a lot of great memories back!
My daughter requested creamed pearl onions so I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving. Made them tonight and gave them a taste Wow. Very good I must say they are a little better than my grandmothers they will become a tradition!
I made this side for Thanksgiving. Easy to make and VERY good.
Best creamed onions I've made. Thank you!
My husband has been asking for Creamed Pearl Onions "like his grandmother used to make". This recipe is a hit! He said it's what he remembered from years ago. Thanks for sharing.
I used heavy whipping cream instead and no butter. Also replaced the all-purpose flour with 100% gluten free Oat flour. I did not put in the salt because the parmesan cheese already added enough salt. Great by it self or over a baked potato or boneless skinless chicken breast. Yummy!!!
Excellent!!!! Just a perfect recipe... would not change a thing. I did not use the optional pimento.
