Directions

  1. Fill a saucepan with water, and bring to a boil. Cook pearl onions in boiling water for 3 minutes, drain, and rinse in cold water. Peel onions, and remove the ends.
  2. Place onions with peas in the saucepan, and fill with enough water to just cover the vegetables. Simmer until tender, about 10 to 12 minutes. Drain, and place vegetables in a bowl.
  3. Melt margarine in the saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour in cream, and season with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil; cook until thick, stirring constantly. Stir peas and onions into the sauce to coat. Serve immediately.

Very tasty!

I liked these, but I was the only one. Their loss. I subbed much less chopped onions & cooked them with the frozen peas. Yummy, but so high in fat.

I used about 10 cocktail onions (drained) and put in with the peas the last ten minutes of simmering. I simmered my peas about 10 minutes longer than suggested because we like almost mushy peas. The flavor was so good we will make this again soon.

I was skeptical I would like this, but it was actually quite tasty. I halved the recipe and used a mix of frozen peas/onion. Surprisingly yummy and super fast to make!

These have the potential for more stars, but the cream never thickened up and the seasonings just weren't strong enough so it came out a little bland. I ended up thickening it with a little slurry and increasing the seasoning. Hubby just didn't like it though.
