Low Carb Creamed Onions

Creamed OnionsNo not those old Thanksgiving day only creamed onions, I’m talking serious onions here. I’m talking several kinds of onions and not a pearl onion in sight. This recipe should easily replace the creamed onions of yesteryear cause…this is today. I use a LOT of onions in various recipes on this site and they don’t seem to particularly affect my blood sugar so thought this does not have a high carb count check your blood sugar just to make sure you are OK.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.
