A holiday staple in many households, creamed onions are usually bathed in a rich white sauce made with heavy cream. In this version, we roast the onions for an added layer of flavor and lighten up the sauce with low-fat milk. The result is a luxuriously silky sauce with a sweet roasted onion flavor for far fewer calories and less fat. We like the smaller size of pearl onions, but boiling onions also work well.

"I agreee... I used 1 lg sweet onion, slivered. I skipped the thyme and lemon juice and also added some red-fat Parm to the sauce. It was a tad too runny without it. Otherwise, these were for my dad, and he loved them!!! "

This was easy to make and has so much more flavor than the prepackaged creamed onions from the store. Unless you were told, you'd never guess it's a healthier version of the standard recipe. The only thing I added was a dash of nutmeg.


Yum! This is so good. You can also slice large, sweet onions and do the same thing. Excellent with a little swiss cheese in the sauce! (Kinda defeats the healthy recipie though). Very easy to turn into a tart.
