I've been making this recipe at holiday time since it first appeared in Cooking Light over 10 years ago. It's simple and straightforward, but it looks fancy and pretty with the pearl onions. It also can be made ahead. It's always a hit.
This was great. I used Costco's baby green beans which I had previously cooked and frozen and added sauteed mushrooms. I served it with Spanish style pork loin, smoked, from (otherwhitemeat) website and roasted potatoes.
Great for Christmas dinner. Cooking times worked for me and I did the onions a day ahead and added them to the cooking beans. Used frozen green beans which worked fine. Might use fewer onions the next time.
