Onion Pie

Onion Pie

Here is another savory pie that I tried and loved! There is a lovely contrast of flavors with the sweet onions and the buttery cracker crust! I couldn't stop eating this pie! And it's so VERY so easy to make! It only takes about an hour from start to finish! 
 This recipe was posted by a cook known as MMB...I found her recipe on the cooking site formerly known as 'The Mixing Bowl' it's known as 'Better Recipes'
I forgot to mention that I added about 3 slices of cooked, crumbled, bacon, to my onion pie because I love the hint of smokey flavor with the other ingredients in this pie!

Onion Pie


1 sleeve of saltine crackers or Ritz brand butter crackers

5 Tbls. butter, melted
2 1/2 cups thinly sliced onions
2 Tbls. corn oil
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk - I used 1% low fat
a pinch each of salt and pepper
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine crackers crumbs with melted butter in a 8" pie pan.
Press the crumb mixture firmly into the pie pan, covering the bottom and sides.
Bake pie crust for 8 minutes. Let cool.
In a small skillet, sauté onions in oil until tender. Toss in cooked bacon.
Put into the cooked pie crust.
Mix together eggs, milk, salt and pepper and pour over onions.
Top with grated cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Serve warm.
