Southern Thanksgiving Tradition

This is a Traditional Southern dish that is served at most family functions, especially the holidays. I have made this on many occasions but being up North most people make a face at the thought of Scalloped Onions. But once they try it most like it and a few have even asked me for the recipe. I hope some of ya’ll will give it a try and let me know what ya’ll think.


2 cans or jars (about 15 1/2 ounces each) small white onions, drain, reserve 1/2 cup liquid

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon flour

1 1/4 cups milk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

dash of cinnamon

dash ground black pepper

2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Remove from the heat stir in flour until smooth; place over low heat. Gradually add reserved onion liquid and milk, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the onions, salt, nutmeg,cinnamon and pepper. Heat thoroughly; transfer to a 1 quart-casserole. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and place under the broiler for about 2 minutes, until nicely browned.

Hope to see ya’ll real soon. Let us hear from you during this holiday season.
