Holy Cow…these were good! I was at Global Foods the other day and they had Cipollini onions. I have always wanted to try them, so I bought them. I found a recipe right away from my clippings from Bon Appetit Here is some info on Cipollini Onions. I believe you can use pearl onions, if you cannot find Copollini Onions.
Baby White Potatoes with Cipollini and Dill
- 1 pound cipollini or boiling onions (each about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter) I only had 1/2 pound…I sure wished I had the whole pound!
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 pounds baby white potatoes (each about 1 to 1 1/4 inches in diameter) I used Klondike gourmet.
- 3 tablespoons minced fresh
- salt and pepper
Cook cipollini onions in medium saucepan of boiling water 3 minutes. Drain; rinse with cold water and peel. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes; stir to coat. Cover skillet; cook potatoes until golden and almost tender, stirring occasionally, about 25 minutes. Mix in cipollini onions. Cover; cook until cipollini onions and potatoes are tender and golden, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes longer. Mix in dill and 1 tablespoon butter. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowl.
Grace loves green beans that way…seriously Mark and I each had a serving and she ate the rest of the bowl. It is her all time fav and usually the only way we make them.
Those onions were so sweet and yummy! Dear Super Valu, Can you get Cipollini onions….I am in love with them!
