Won't Make You Cry Onion Pie

Dena sent me the recipe today. Enjoy!

Onion Pie from cookbook published by First Baptist Church, Stillwater, Oklahoma, 1992

3 c. onions, sliced
1/4 c. butter
1/2 lb cheddar cheese, grated
1.5 c. milk, scalded
3 eggs, beaten
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 c butter
30 small crackers, crushed

Note about the crust: The cracker crumb crust is more trouble than I care for the in kitchen, so I use Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls as the crust. Just press them into a pie plate until bottom of plate is covered. They make a great crust!

Mix cracker crumbs in 1/2 butter and press into greased, shallow 2 qt baking dish. Saute sliced onions in 1/4 c butter, then pour over crackers. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the onions.

Mix milk, eggs, salt, pepper. Pour over cheese.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until it is set.

Ohhhh, that sounds good. Tell Dena thank you. I will definately be making this soon and my little one will enjoy it too. She has a weird liking for raw onions!

That sounds DELICIOUS! I wish I could try it...someday, I will.

The crust you use is an awesome idea, I am going to use that idea in the future for a vegetable tart I just saw on the Food Network.
