  • 1 pint boiling onions, boiled in water to cover for 1 minute, drained, pelled, simmered in salted water until tender, 8 to 10 minutes, and drained; or one-half 16 ounce package of frozen baby onions, thawed

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 cup milk, heated until bubbles appear around the edge

  • cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/3 cup cracker crumbs (commercial, or crushed saltines)
