“Slimmed down sauce with reduced-fat milk and frozen pearl onions. Convenient because the pearl onions are already peeled, they develop a deep richness when they caramelize that's world's apart from past boiled-onion dishes. This came from Good Housekeeping. I have not tried this but I'm posting it for safe keeping.”
