Reviews forCreamed Pearl Onions
"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!"
"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."
