Onion pie

I asked my daughter to go help weed the garden Sunday and
she did not pick weeds instead she picked 23 onions.

This inspired me to make my husband an onion pie. Sorta like a quiche but only used two eggs to hold the custard together, cream lots of onions and cream. He loves this, has anyone tried anything similar or with different vegies?

She did stop at 23 onion she only picked about half of the onions thank
God. She loves the garden I think I would pick the good stuff first too.

You did good! Actually, there's an Alsatian onion tart that's very similar to yours, only with the addition of - I think - some gruyere cheese.

Onions and/or leeks and lots of thinly-sliced finocchio (fennel?), then cheese, eggs, cream, and some bacon.

Slimming it's not. Delicious it is!

I make an Alsace onion tart but my version has no gruyere cheese in. A tarte paysanne has gruyere in, but also anchovy fillets so no good for vegetarians. No reason why you shouldn't leave them out, though, and add a bit more salt instead I suppose.

I love onion tart, especially with a generous sprinkling of nutmeg on top.

I cook the pie crust, but then carefully excise the filling away from the crust... I'm not a great pastry lover

Ishbel - have you ever tried just making the tart w/out a crust at all? We have 'crustless' quiches, so I don't think this would be much different - would be great on top of a salad!

marm, could you post a recipe for a crustless onion quiche? I'm doing lo-carb.

Thanks!

Lee - not really a separate recipe. Just use whatever recipe you usually use for a quiche, just don't make the crust. Bake the same way. I use a pyrex pie plate, and butter the sides and bottom a little.
