Pearl Onion and Brussels Sprouts Saute

In the late summer and early fall we harvest the remainder of our onion crop and tie the onions in bundles, then hang them from a rack in the barn. In the late winter and early spring we have usually used most of the medium to large onions and I have the little pearl onions left. They  will actually start to sprout while they are hanging so I try to use them up. The other day I took a big bundle of the pearl onions and made this delicious dish and I wanted to share it with you.
Pearl Onion and Brussels Sprouts Saute
Start With Pearl Onions

Wash and peel the onions.
Heat the bacon fat or oil in a large dutch oven then add the onions. Cook the onions until they begin to caramelize
Add the cleaned Brussels Sprouts, salt, pepper, thyme, and garlic mix and cook for 2 minutes until the seasons begin to cook.

Cook on medium heat about 20 minutes until Onions and Brussels Sprouts are tender and some of the liquid is reduced.
Enjoy!

  4. What a wonderful way to incorporate brussel sprouts into the pearl onions. I love both, separate, or together, but the way you made them Miz Helen, is so tempting, and comforting, and so, so delicious. Great idea to use leftovers for soup.
    Thanks for sharing!

  14. Miz Helen, that is a gorgeous dish! Looking forward to joining Full Plate Thursday this week. I wanted to let you know that I have decided maintaining two blogs is too many, so am no longer blogging at Food As Art. Instead, I kept Beyond The Garden Gate, where I will combine my interests in cooking, tea, and tablescaping along with gardening, travel, and nature. Hope to see you at http://beyondthegardengate-beth.blogspot.com
    Blessings to you, Beth
