  • 1 1/2 lb small white onions
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 1/2-2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper white pepper preferred


  • Peel onions as directed above in the post. Pat the onions dry.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; add oil and when it begins to shimmer, add the onions. Make sure you toss the onions around so you get browning on a couple of sides. Be aware that because of the round shape, the onions will not brown evenly. When they brown to your satisfaction, drain any excess oil from the pan.
  • Add the cream (amount depends on how much sauce you want), salt and pepper. Keep pan over medium heat until the cream reduces and coats the onions; about 5 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
