Quick Creamed Onion Recipe


Creamed onions are a Thanksgiving Dinner tradition in many families, especially in areas of the South. Creamed Onion recipes vary, with many calling for blanching and peeling tiny pearl onions, which is a lot of work as well as time consuming. This recipe uses sliced onions, as well as a homemade Cream Soup Mix to save time. A microwave oven makes quick work of the initial cooking of the onions. To save on dishes, microwave the onions in the 2 quart casserole dish that the finished onions will be cooked in.

For those who plan to be busy on Thanksgiving day, this casserole may be prepared up to two days ahead and refrigerated; to keep the bread crumb topping crisp, don’t sprinkle it on until just ready to bake.
