Simple Glazed Pearl Onions


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lb frozen pearl onions, thawed (can use fresh, cooked and peeled)
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, divided


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to brown on all sides; about 10 – 12 minutes.
  2. Add the brown sugar and gently stir in the mustard to make a smooth coating over the onions; add salt, pepper, and 1 tbsp parsley. Cook about 2 minutes longer.
  3. Place into a serving bowl and sprinkle with remaining 1 tbsp parsley for garnish.
