Creamed Onions

I've been waiting for the perfect time to make this Smitten Kitchen recipe for a looong time. Christmas dinner was the perfect opportunity. I didn't get quite the creamy sauce that Smitten Kitchen achieved, but the dish was still quite delicious, a great holiday side. Kyle and Mom approved.

Creamed Onions with Bacon and Chives

3 10 oz bags of frozen pearl onions
2 1/2 oz bacon, diced
1 1/4 C heavy cream
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp sherry
1/2 bunch chives, chopped
Salt, to taste

In a saucepan, cook the bacon until crisp, dry on a paper towel. Leave about 2 tbsps of bacon fat in the pan. Add the onions, cream, nutmeg, and salt to taste. Cook the onions until done with a lid cracked ajar on the pan. When almost done, take off the lid and add the sherry. Garnish with bacon and chives.
