Creamed Pearl Onions Recipe: Sometimes Big Flavor Comes in Small Packages by Donna John
The local farmer's market had a variety of pearl onions. Who could resist that? With a little cream, a little Parm and a little time in the oven, these tiny onions were the star of the meal. Fresh herbs, like rosemary, thyme or parsley, would be welcome to the pearl onion party.
- pearl onions
- olive oil
- heavy cream
- freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Here's how to make it:
Cut the very ends off of the onions and carefully remove the skins.
Put the cleaned pearl onions in a baking dish. Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven about 30 minutes, or until tender and beginning to brown.
Pour a little heavy cream over the top and continue to bake until cream begins to bubble and thicken. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and bake about 5 minutes more. Serve.
