DEUTSCH ZWIEBELKUCHEN (ONION PIE)

This is an onion pie from south-central Germany. It is served in the fall when the local winemakers open a cafe-like area called a Besenwirtschaft in their barn or garage to serve the new wine for a small fee. To let people know when they are open, they hang a straw broom over the doorway.
