Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 pound frozen pearl onions, thawed and patted dry
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme (or 1/4 teaspoon dried)

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add onions. Cook, tossing occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.

  2. Sprinkle with sugar; season with salt and pepper. Add 2/3 cup water and thyme; cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender and liquid has evaporated, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Note

The longer the pearl onions cook, the sweeter and more caramelized they will become. Toss with a little balsamic vinegar, if desired.
