Onion Pie My friend has made this for me a few times and it is wonderful!
1 cup cracker crumbs
1/2 cup melted butter
Combine and pat into a pie plate
Saute 3 or 4 sliced onions in butter. Pile onions onto the crust.
2 beaten eggs
3/4 cup milk
Pour over the onions and crust. Top with shredded cheese. Bake 1/2 an hour at 350 or until set.
Note: I used Low Fat Ritz (one tube) and crushed them in my hands. Melted a cube of butter and squished it all together.
I sauteed 2 walla walla sweet onions, and almost a whole red onion (sm. - med. sized).
Mixed the eggs and milk, dumped it on.
The recipe calls for cheddar cheese but I did not have any, I used fresh grated parmesan. Turned out perfect!
FRENCH ONION SOUP This is the onion soup recipe that I use. Pretty great!
1/2 tablespoons butter (you can use much less)
2-3 cups thinly sliced onions (Walla walla sweet works best)
4 cups beef broth
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup white wine
4-6 slices french bread
3/4-1 cup shredded cheese, your choice.. I use a combo of swiss and parmasian
In a large saucepan melt butter. Stir in onions. Cooked covered, over medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes, or until tender and golden, stirring occasionally. Add beef broth, white wine, Worcestershire sauce and a dash of pepper. Bring to a boil.
reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
fill small (OVEN SAFE) soup bowls with soup sprinkle with parmasian cheese, top with a piece of French bread and some of the Swiss cheese, bake in 350 degree oven until cheese is melted and nicely browned!! Very easy and very good!!
THE BOWLS WILL BE EXTREAMLY HOT!!
