Recipe by request from several of my Facwbook friends
Vidalia Onion Pie
For a regular size pie plate:
1/4 box cheese its
2 tbsp butter
2 large or 3 small onions
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of milk
If you have a deep dish pie plate, you’ll need a little more of everything.
To put it together, crush the cheese crackers and add butter to make the crust and sautée the onions (with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes).
Layer the cooked onions with shredded cheese in the pie crust (I usually start and end with cheese).
Then mix the milk and eggs with salt and pepper and pour over top. Poke through the onions to let it sink in and add more milk if It looks like it needs it. Bake at 375° for about 30 minutes, or until set.
If it’s deeper, do three large or four small onions. Obviously, double thethe recipe if making two shallow pies.
I have never measured the cheesy crackers. I just crush em and line the pie plate until things look right.
This is very similar to a quiche and great for cheese and onion lovers.
