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.
- 2 cups white pearl onions, drained
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons butter
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons flour
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 1 dash nutmeg
- Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
- Add flour and stir until well blended.
- Add milk gradually.
- Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture has thickened.
- Drain onions and add to sauce.
- Season with pepper and nutmeg.
- 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.
