  1. having had something extremely similar to this several times I was excited to try out this recipe. I did alter it slightly by making a roux to thicken the sauce and followed other reviewer's suggestion of simmering the cream with a crushed garlic clove and some bay leaves. The only thing that seemed off when - Read more ...
  2. This was delicious. My husband had eaten all of the "buttery round crackers" secretly so I substituted saltines and left the salt out of the recipe. After baking I sprinkled some crumbled garlic croutons over the top. I'll serve this wonderful rich side dish again!
  3. I made this today for Christmas dinner with a standing rib roast and Yorkshire pudding. It was the perfect accompaniment. This was so good. I made the recipe exactly as written only thing different was I raised the oven temp to 400 for the last 20 minutes but just because my oven was slow and - Read more ...
  4. I made this for Thanksgiving and it was incredible! It is extremely rich so I will not be making it on a regular basis but is great for holidays when you don't mind the extra calories! I usually make creamed onions with cream of mushroom soup so this was a nice treat.

  8. this is one delicious recipe. i couldn't find frozen pearl onions. it would have been nice because peeling those little suckers wasn't easy. after having read the other reviews i steamed my onions first...till tender and then followed the recipe from there. i will make this again. thanks.
  9. The recipe did not specify fresh or frozen onions. I used fresh and had too cook it much longer which in the end caused the cream to separate. This had a good taste to it I did add a couple of garlic cloves. Next time I will par boil the onions first.
