    CountryLady's Note:

    This is an old-fashioned dish but the addition of wine & mustard makes it rather luxurious! It can be made up to 3 days in advance.

      For just 2 of us (and furry friend), I halved the recipe, and started early in the afternoon - to the point of adding cream and mustard. The 25 minute boiling time evaporated most of the liquid, but I added more broth and wine, and just let the pan sit, covered. Couldn't find the whole grain mustard, so just added dijon. Since I am not usually the major chef here, was surprised to hear DH say that this could be on our Christmas buffet! Thanks, CountryLady for a new and (rather) healthy taste treat !

      A wonderful side dish for my Sunday meal, I used frozen thawed baby onions, I did increase the garlic and mustard, and omitted the bay leaf, thanks for another winner Marg!...Kitten:)

      My husband said he liked this and shocked me! It was delicious and easy to make. I didn't use pearl onions, I subbed red onions and quartered them. The mustard gave a nice flavor to the dish with just a hint of sweetness. I used vegetarian chicken broth and I didn't have whole grain mustard, so used Dijon. Thanks C.L. for a tasty dish!
