  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.

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...

Really pleased with the suggestion to use milk. (One cup milk mixed with one tablespoon cornstarch can be substituted for the cream)..it made a light sauce and I used petite peas with cooked pe...

I doubled the spices as recommended by others, and also added 1/4 t of nutmeg. Everyone really liked it, including people who don't like creamed onions too much. Could have even added more pe...

Perfect. The little extra effort is well worth the flavor. One of my favorites. Bravo.

Very good! I used canned peas and a jar of cocktail onions.
