Onion Pie

Forgot to cross-post this from GIMB, and it’s definitely worth a cross-post:

We had a surplus of onions this weekend, so I cooked up a mess of them and did various things. This was the tastiest, and it’s good hot or cold:

Extra-virgin olive oil
2 large yellow onions, sliced
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
8 eggs, beaten
1 heaping teaspoon dried dill
Healthy dash jalapeno tabasco
Salt and pepper to taste
½-cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Spray a glass pie pan with nonstick coating. Preheat oven to 350°.

Sautee the onions and garlic in the EVOO until they just begin to caramelize (I actually did them separately because I was doing batches of both ingredients, but I don’t think cooking them together will hurt, just put the garlic in later so it doesn’t burn). Place the onions and garlic in the pie pan and spread them out so they make an even layer on the bottom.

Sprinkle cheese evenly over onion layer.

Mix salt, pepper, dill, and tabasco with the eggs, and pour mixture over the onions and cheese.

Bake for 45 minutes.


We made this again last night. I don’t think I’m going to eat it hot any more, because it’s actually better cold, the next day, after the flavors have intensified. Mmmm. *eats*
