Recipe by Grimm's Restaurant Tales
The story on this one is that I was trying to bring something new to our family Thanksgiving. Our meal is usually traditional with the same recipes every year and I didn't want to throw anything too exotic into the mix. I didn't realize how well it had gone over until the next year when I recieved an assortment of enthusiastic voicemails, 2 days before Thanksgiving, requesting it again. Two Novembers ago we had a hepatitis outbreak in Dallas traced back to green onions which gave me the idea of substituting tiny broccoli florets or leeks, just use a little creativity if that many onions turn you off.
