Top Rated Pearl Onion Recipes

Brussels sprouts cry out for bacon, at least in my kitchen, says The Daily Meal's editorial director, Colman Andrews. But, he adds, fried prosciutto is even better, because it's leaner and fries up much faster.

Creamed Onions
Wondering why New England diners serve a bowl of onions alongside their Thanksgiving feast? Well, this is one dish that is meant to be enjoyed solo. The gentle cooking of the pearl onions, their mostly mild flavor, and the creamy sauce that enrobes them makes these onions not only palatable, but enjoyable.

Roasted Cornish Game Hens
While many people might not be familiar with cornish game hens (aka young chickens), I actually grew up eating them. A lot of them. This particular dish is a riff on something my mother made that we referred to as "Chicken with Greens" because of the heavy dousing of oregano on top. All in all, this dish is incredibly easy to make. I chose to use whole pearl onions and shallots instead of opting for fingerlings or other potatoes, but you can choose that route if you prefer. A less lazy cook than I would peel the onions, but I had just taken a kick-your-booty kind of class at the gym and wasn't sure how much longer I'd be able to stand up for. So, I simply rubbed them to remove any excess skin and placed them in the roasting pan as is (and they came out spectacularly). I particularly love whole roasted onions and shallots (much like roasted garlic) because they completely break down and become ultra creamy and soft. You can also toss a garlic head in the pan as well if you'd like, just lop off the top and drizzle with some olive oil.  Click here to see Cozy Winter Meals.

Braised Lamb Stew
After receiving a new Dutch oven for Christmas (yay!), I was excited to put it to use with this easy stew. Feel free to add other herbs like rosemary or thyme to it and vegetables like chickpeas or beans, but this lamb stew is delicious as is. Because of my love for tomatoes, I decided to use that as my braising liquid instead of broth. It still has a fair amount of acidity and some sweetness, which was enhanced by the carrots. We served it with crispy potatoes, but it would also work well with rice, couscous, or boiled potatoes. Click here to see the Slow Cooker Challenge. Click here for more of the 101 Best Slow Cooker Recipes
