Creamed Pearl Onions Recipe: Sometimes Big Flavor Comes in Small Packages

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. 

You'll need:

  • 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.
