Creamed Pearl Onions Recipe

Publisher Photo
When our children were small, we always celebrated Christmas at our house. This was one of many recipes I relied on that can be prepared a day in advance, which gave me more time to spend with guests. Everyone expected to see this vegetable dish on the table every year. —Barbara Caserman, Lake Havasu City, Arizona

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.

MY REVIEW

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!!!
