This is a recipe Huey made today serving it with a grilled steak and a wedge of lemon - looked delicious but could be served as a side to any meat.

Yum! I couldn't find fresh baby onions at the store, so used frozen onions. I needed to cook them for about 15 minutes longer to get them tender. Really nice flavor and glaze. These were great as a side dish with chicken and rice. Thanks Pat for a nice keeper. Made for Best of 2010 Tag.
