  • 1
    Olive Oil
    2 pounds Cipolline Onions (peeled and roots trimmed)
    Salt
    1 tablespoon Sugar
    3 tablespoons Sweet Butter
    1/4 cup fresh Thyme leaves
    1/3 cup Sherry
    1/4 cup Heavy Cream
    freshly cracked Black Pepper
    Heat a large skillet oven medium-high with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Add onions, and season with salt. Sprinkle the onions all over with sugar. Cook, undisturbed for one minute, and then add the butter, continuing to cook until the onions begin to develop deep caramelization. Flip the onions, and cook for one minute, and then add the thyme, followed by the sherry. Cook for 10 minutes or until onions are lightly deeply caramelized and. Remove from heat and stir in cream. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  • 2
    1/2 cup Robiolina Cheese
    1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
    For the Special: Stir in the Robiolina and Parmigiano-Reggiano off of the heat.
  • 3
    White Truffles (shaved and very finely grated)
    For the Spectacular: Shave truffles over the onions, and then sprinkle the truffles with salt.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. You can use pearl or even frozen pearl onions instead of Cipolline.
    2. Do two batches so there’s no overcrowding in the pan, and all the onions have the nice dark color on the bottom.
    3. You could also use Marscapone, ricotta, or even cream cheese instead of Robiolina cheese.
