I would like to share this wonderful pie with a little history to it. In the 80's and driving our way back from Florida to Chicago. We happened to stop in Georgia, and purchased a bag of the states delicious sweet (GA.)Vandalia onions,along with this great buttery sweet stuffed onion pie recipe. Years later I moved to Spokane, WA.and now enjoy the states great,Walla Walla sweet onions.Pictured. Another sweet onion is the Maui from Island of Maui.The onions are named for where they are grown.They are so sweet you can eat them like an apple! Also try a fried egg,onion & mayo sandwich.YUMMY!!
