How to Make AMISH ONION PIE
1Saute onion in a small amount of butter or oil until clear and pour cooked onion into a large mixing bowl.
2Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, chop and add to onion; mix well.
3Stir in sour cream. Beat eggs enough to break up yolks, then mix into pie mixture.
4Add flour to thicken mixture (onions will create a lot of water). Then add salt and pepper. Mix well and pour mixture into prepared pie crust. Sprinkle top with caraway seeds, if desired.
5Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven about 1 hour, or until onions start to turn golden brown on top.
6NOTE: You could experiment with different toppings if you don't like caraway seeds, such as lightly buttered bread crumbs, or a little shredded cheese.
