Simple Creamed Baby Onions Cooking Recipes

Creamed Baby Onions

I grew up thinking you could serve these wonderful little onions only at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and then only if you were having the traditional turkey with all the trimmings. Occasionally we had roast beef or goose for Christmas, so that limited us to once a year for creamed onions. Thankfully, once I was out on my own, I learned you can have these any time you want, serving them with everything from roast poultry to a succulent London broil.

Makes 6 servings

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 2 pints (1 1/4 pounds) boiling onions, boiled in water to cover for 1 minute, drained, peeled, simmered in chicken stock to cover until tender, about 15 minutes, and drained, 1/2 cup stock reserved; or one 16-ounce bag frozen baby onions, thawed, simmered in chicken stock to cover for 5 minutes, and drained,

  • 1/2 cup stock reserved

  • 3/4 cup half-and-half, heavy cream, or milk, hot

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 teaspoon cumin (optional)

  • Chopped fresh parsley

  1. Melt the butter in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes. Do not brown.

  2. Stir in 1/2 cup of the reserved stock. Stir in the half-and-half (use cream to produce a very unctuous finished dish).

  3. Simmer the mixture over low heat, stirring to prevent it from sticking, until it is thick and creamy, 5 minutes or longer.

  4. Stir in salt, pepper, and if using, cumin. Stir in the onions vegetables and heat through.
