BM # 20 Day 2
For today , the 2nd day of BM I have chosen to cook with baby onions. The creamed onions are a little unique, as they are immersed in hot water ....without peeling. This procedure lends them a stronger aromatic yet very pleasing flavor.
6-8............ baby onions
1cup ........white sauce
2 slices.... bread
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Place water to boil.
Put the unpeeled baby onions in this water.
Let boil for 2 mins.
Drain into a colander.
Pour water to stop further cooking.
Peel the onions.
Slit the onions into a criss cross, keeping the onion whole and intact.
Boil in salted water, till tender.
Place the boiled onions in a buttered baking dish.
Pour white sauce.
Sprinkle toasted ,buttered bread crumbs.
Bake for 10-15 minutes.
Toasted bread crumbs
Remove crust from bread.
Put them in a mixer and give a quick churn.
Toast them lightly with 1tsp butter in a non stick pan.
Herbs of your choice
The creamed onions were my first trial and personally I enjoyed them , so did the family but they tasted a bit sweet.To make this dish more delicious I will add some herbs to stuff these onions to cut down the sweetness.
Serve the creamed onions with some toasted garlic bread.
