|2 large sweet onions (Vidalia), peeled and cut in half crosswise
1/4 cup milk
1 TB butter or margarine
1/4 tsp salt
Pinch black pepper
Pinch ground nutmeg
1/4 cup half-and-half
Place the onions in a heavy 2-quart saucepan. Add the milk and enough water to cover the onions. Simmer for 10 to 12 minutes.
Drain the onions in a colander, let them cool slightly, then chop them coarsely. Return the onions to the pan. Add the butter, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and half-and-half. Simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
