Creamed Onions

Serves 4

  • 1 pound pearl onions, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Diamond kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black peppercorns
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (fresh is best)
  • 1/2 cup Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

Bring the pearl onions to a boil and boil for 1 minute.

Simmer onions for 15 minutes or until tender.

Scoop pearl onions out of the water with a slotted spoon and place into a 2 quart baking dish.

In a small saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter and stir in the flour to make a roux.

Cook roux to a light golden brown, 2 – 3 minutes.

Add the cream, diamond kosher salt, ground black peppercorns and ground nutmeg.

Whisk constantly until thick, 3 – 5 minutes.

Pour thickened sauce over the pearl onions and sprinkle with Swiss cheese.

Brown the breadcrumbs in a skillet with the remaining tablespoon of butter and sprinkle over pearl onions.

Bake for 15 minutes until bubbly and golden.
