It’s fall, y’all! And that means it’s time to start planning our Thanksgiving dinners! (I’m totally on board with any holiday that revolves around eating!)

Creamed pearl onions were a holiday staple in my house when I was growing up. Now that I’m cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my own family, I knew it was time to learn to make them.

So I called my mom and asked for the “secret family recipe.” Turns out, it’s printed on the back of the jar of onions. Oh well. It’s delicious either way!

You’ll need:

  • 2 jars pearl onions
  • 2 cups Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 2 tablespoons sherry
  • ¼ teaspoon dried mustard
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt and white pepper

While this recipe calls for two cups of Parmesan, I recommend you only use one. (For the very first time in my life, I can admit that something had too much cheese.)
