This creamy smooth onion side dish is a must for Christmas and Thanksgiving. My family's always after me to make it much more often. There's usually no leftovers. Flat parsley has more flavor than curly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook frozen onions according to package directions.
  2. Melt butter in a sauce pan over very low heat.
  3. Whisk in about 1/2 T flour, whisking well (and constantly) until smooth. When it bubbles allow it to simmer for about a minute, constantly whisking.
  4. Repeat step 3 until all flour is used. This will be very thick.
  5. Add milk about 1/8 cup at a time, whisking constantly until smooth and allowing it to simmer (still whisking) about a minute after mixture becomes smooth.
  6. Drain onions and let them steam off most of the excess water. Add to sauce.
  7. Chop parsley fine and add to mixture. Allow to simmer about a minute, stirring constantly with a mixing spoon.
  8. Transfer to serving dish and garnish with paprika.
