Spanish Onions with Maître d’Hôtel Butter

Oignons d’Espagne à la Maître d’Hôtel


Peel the onions, put them in cold water with a little salt, just bring it to the boil, take up the onions, wash them in cold water, and then put them into plenty of boiling water, season with salt, and boil gently for two or three hours; when they are tender put them on a sieve, and let all the water drain from them; dish up, and place on the top of each a little maître d’hôtel butter, and serve.
