Creamed Pearl Onions

Years ago, I took a business trip to Spokane, Wa. I had dinner at the home of my client and his wife served a creamed onion side dish that I absolutely fell in love with it. This sounds like it might be very close to that dish. From the American Heart Association Cookbook.


  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add flour and stir until well blended.
  3. Add milk gradually.
  4. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture has thickened.
  5. Drain onions and add to sauce.
  6. Season with pepper and nutmeg.
  7. Serve hot.

I made this the day before Thanksgiving. It is a great side dish. I just added a little onion powder to the milk for additional flavor.
