Cheesy onions, yum
- 16 ounces white pearl onions
- 2 cups parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 cup half-and-half
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- Preheat oven to 300°F Bring a medium sized pot of water to a boil. Cook onions in boiling water covered about 2-3 minutes.
- Remove onions from water and plunge into ice water; peel. Arrange onions in a lightly greased 1 qt baking dish.
- Combine remaining ingredients except paprika in a small bowl. Pour mixture over onions, then sprinkle with paprika. Cover and bake 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time.
The sauce thicken at the bottom while at the top stayed thin. I suggest making a basic white sauce a (Bechamel) then pour it over the onion and cheese and just place under the broiler to slightly brown and bubble. The only change I made was to use no salt because of all the parmesan cheese. 1/4 of sodium in one side is a bit much for the day. So take this as a treat and have a smaller amount. Thanks I will make this again with a Bechamel made first. Thanks.
This is the kind of recipe for me delicious and easy!!! I quadrupled the recipe. The only thing I will change in the future is the salt. I think the parm cheese is salty enough for this recipe. Thank you for this great recipe!!!
