Sweet Onion Pie
For this, you need sweet onions like the "Sweet Texas 1015" or the Georgia "Vidalia". Either one works very well! I use the Texas 1015's because I live where they are grown!
Next time I make this, I will provide you with a photo. This makes a beautiful-looking pie!
1sleeve saltine crackers, well crushed
1 stickbutter or margarine, melted
2 1/2 cthin sliced texas sweet 1015 onions or vidalia onions (1 very large onion should be enough)
2 Tbspveg. oil (or canola, corn oil, peanut oil, etc)
3/4 cmilk or half & half
2extra large or jumbo eggs
·salt & pepper to taste
1 tspseasoned salt
1 ccheddar cheese (or other cheese of your liking)
How to Make Sweet Onion Pie
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix crushed cracker crumbs with melted butter in a bowl. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a glass 9" pie dish. Bake at 350 degrees 10-12 mins. This sets the crust. Remove from oven.
- While your crust is in the oven, sautee sliced onions in veg. oil in a large frying pan. Sautee until onions are getting soft, but still tender. Drain well on paper towels and then place into pie shell, arranging the onions evenly. In a small bowl, break eggs and whip well with milk (or half & half). Add salt, pepper and seasoned salt and mix well. Pour egg mixture over the onions and top with cheese.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool about 15 minutes before serving. This is best served hot or very warm.
