This is a good dish for a cold winter night. It is so easy to make to, we have this with a crusty bread and a salad.

2 cups frozen pearl onions
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 box (7.2 oz. size) roasted garlic mashed potatoes (1 pouch potatoes and seasoning)
1-1/4 cup hot water
2/3 cup milk
Swedish-style cooked meatballs (about 32 meatballs) thawed
1 jar (12-oz) mushroom-beef gravy
Preheat the oven to 375*F.
In a 10 in. nonstick skillet. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter, add onions and brown sugar, cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and increase the heat cook 6 to 8 minutes longer, stirring until onions begin to turn golden brown.
Meanwhile in a 1-1/2 qt. bowl, stir potato mix, hot water, milk and remaining butter until moistened. Cover with plastic and microwave on High for 2 to 6 minutes or until hot. Stir gently until blended, whip smooth.
