Three onion pie with feta cheese:

2 tbsp safflower oil
1 large red onion, quartered
2 leeks, chopped
3 tbsp fresh parsley, divided
1 tsp dried tarragon
1 green pepper, finely chopped
1 dry bread crumbs
1 large yellow onion, chopped
2 tbsp dry white wine
2 eggs beaten
1 tbsp chopped fresh dill, or 1 tbsp dry
4 oz crumbled feta
1 tomato, thinly sliced

Heat oil in large skillet. Add the yellow and red onions and saute over moderate heat 5 min. Stir in wine, add leeks. Saute another 15 min, stir frequently, or until onions are golden and leeks are limp. Remove from heat. Preheat oven 350°. In mixing bowl, combine beaten eggs with two tablespoons of the parsley, dill, tarragon, feta cheese, and pepper. Stir in the onion mixture. Oil a 10-inch tart pan and line bottom generously with bread crumbs. Pour in onion mixture. Ring the outside edge with tomato slice, then sprinkle the remaining parsley in the center. Sprinkle a light layer of bread crumbs over the entire top. Bake for 40 to 45 min, or until the mixture is set and top is golden. Let stand for 5 to 10 min, then cut into wedges.

Two Leaks.

LOL.. I thought this was going to be a joke about leaks...

I slice my leaks thinly
and then saute in olive oil. Add salt pepper and some garlic powder
and then just before they are nice and soft I had some butter.

and tasty.
Love the life you live!
