Boiler Onions

boiling onion = boiler = boiler onion Notes: These are small versions of yellow, white, or red onions. They're up to two inches in diameter, and usually cooked whole. Substitutes: pearl onions (smaller) OR cippolini onion

I sometimes substitute shallots as I think they have a better flavor.
