When a Recipe Calls For a Little Onion, Use Pearl Onions

Simple Tip: When You Need a Little Onion, Use Pearls

Sometimes it seems like my vegetable drawer is an onion graveyard. I'm always buying onions and only using a half or fourth of it. Since I hate wasting food and often am cooking for just myself, I started purchasing these little bags of pearl onions. They have the same flavor as regular onions, but are much smaller. Once minced, each pearl onion is about 2 tablespoons of onion. Although they can be tough to peel, if you're using one or two for a small amount of onion it doesn't really matter. Do you cook with pearl onions?
