    Parmesan Creamed Onions Recipe

    Parmesan Creamed Onions Recipe

    I love onions. Luckily for me, my oldest hates onions, so I never have to share with her. I will sometimes roast an entire onion just to snack on. For Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, I often make homemade seasoned stuffing with a white onion. While reading about the history of Thanksgiving before the holiday this year, I learned that creamed onions were a popular recipe for much of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries through the early twentieth century. For Thanksgiving this year, I combined a couple of recipes that I found into a tasty side dish that everyone in my family (except my daughter) raved about! I plan to serve the dish again next year.

    Ingredients

    • 3 large sweet onions
    • 1 cup of whole milk
    • 1 cup of cream
    • 1 cup of white wine
    • 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
    • 4 tablespoons of melted butter
    • 1 teaspoon of salt
    • 1 teaspoon of black pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
    • 8 ounces of Parmesan cheese

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
    2. Peel the onions.
    3. Slice the onions, leaving the rings intact.
    4. Layer the onion slices in a greased glass baking pan.
    5. Stir together the milk, cream, white wine, flour, melted butter, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
    6. Pour the cream mixture over the sliced onions.
    7. Cook the onions covered for 45 minutes.
    8. Uncover the onions.
    9. Sprinkle the shredded Parmesan cheese on top of the onions.
    10. Cook for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
    11. Serve the Parmesan creamed onions hot.
    12. Refrigerate any uneaten creamed onions.
