this is a copy of the recipe that my mom sent me.
The cream onions are very easy to make. Here is the recipe: 4-5 medium to large yellow onions--- milk----flour-----butter------salt
First peel and cut the onions in small wedges. Put the onions in a pot with water and cook until they are tender. Make the cream sauce (béchamel sauce): In a pan, melt 2/3 stick of butter and add about 1/3 cup flour. Stir this paste while adding about a cup of cold milk to it. Keep stirring while it cooks and thickens. Add the drained onions and cook a little longer until it is all uniformly hot. If it appears too watery, add a little more flour dissolved in a little milk.
If it appears too thick, add more milk. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve. You can prepare this a day before and just heat before dinner. You can practice using a smaller quantity so that you get the touch for the sauce a few days before.
And with that I think I'll go get started making them for turkey night dinner.
