A traditional holiday favorite in my family, this creamed pearl onion recipe is a surprising treat to the palate. Chopped dry roasted peanuts mingle with the cream sauce and onions, while the bread crumb topping gives it a nice bit of added texture. My sister used to bake this at every holiday meal she hosted, and since we've lost her, it has a special meaning :).
