My sis-in-law, Karen, who is from Georgia swears by this yummy pie and I have to agree it is special. Just remember to only use Vidalia onions!!
I'm actually surprised she gave me the recipe, it's been her secret recipe for awhile:) She must love me, lol.

  2. In lg skillet, over med-high heat, saute onions in remaining butter until tender, stirring often. Pour onions into pie crust.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour over onions. Sprinkle cheese over top. Bake 45 mins or until center is set. You can cover w/ foil if cheese is browning too quick, but remove foil the last 10 mins. Cut into wedges.
