Here is another alternative to the traditional creamed onions on your holiday table that is much quicker and easier to make. From Good Food Magazine November 1988.
- 2 lbs baby onions
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
- Place onions in large heavy saucepan and add water to cover. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until barely tender, 7-10 minutes. Drain and let cool slightly. Slip off skins and trim root ends.
- Melt butter in same saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar and increase heat to medium-high. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are glazed and golden brown, 5-8 minutes. Stir in vinegar and thyme; cook 1 minute longer. Serve hot.
These were very easy to cook up and was a good accompaniment for pork tenderloin. I think next time I will add a little more sugar so they are a little sweeter, but otherwise the balsamic gave the onions a nice flavor. Made for Newest Zaar.
