Creamed Onions II

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Boiling onions are blanched, peeled and cooked through before covering them with a basic white sauce. A dash of hot pepper sauce livens up the sauce.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Cut ends off onions and place in a large pot of water. Bring to boil; remove from water and cool slightly. Slip skins off and return onions to water. Simmer until tender.
  • In a saucepan, melt butter and gradually stir in flour until smooth. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • In a separate saucepan, scald half and half, gradually whisk into butter mixture. Add nutmeg, salt and pepper sauce; add onions and cook until thick and smooth.
