Onion Pie

My stash of winter onions are getting a little soft so I need to use them up quick.  I love onions and use them as a main dish more often than as a complement to a meal.  Give the following recipes a try.


1 1/2 c. course cracker crumbs
1/2 tsp. curry powder
6 Tbs. butter, melted
2 large onions thinly sliced
1 1/4 c. milk
1 1/2 c. grated cheese
6 eggs
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. butter

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Mix cracker crumbs, curry powder, salt and 6 Tbs. butter together.  Line a greased 9 inch pie pan with the mixture.  Hold back 1/4 cup for the topping.  Saute onions in olive oil until transparent.  Put into pie pan.  Heat the milk in a double boiler, add grated cheese and stir until melted.  Slowly stir in beaten eggs.  Pour over onions.  Sprinkle with remaining cracker mixture.  Bake for 40 minutes


Make your favorite bread dough recipe.  Line a large round baking sheet with a thin layer of dough over-lapping the edges with a couple of inches all around.  Cut 3-4 large onions into slices and spread over dough.  Drizzle with olive oil and add seasonings of choice.  I like to add sun/oven dried tomatoes that I have prepared from the summer harvest and kept in the freezer.  Add sauteed garlic and freshly ground sea salt.  Fold edges over and brush with egg whites for a crusty edge.  Bake 350-375 degrees until dough is cooked.
