What's Cookin' Wednesday - Onion Pie!

It's been a while since I shared a cheesy yummy delicious recipe with you! So today I thought I'd show you something that's a Christmas dinner tradition in my family - Onion Pie. So yummy!! But first, a card featuring an image of me making it. It was so nice of Kim at My Favorite Things to offer a stamp of me like this. She captured my thighs perfectly. Because eating stuff like cheesy yummy delicious Onion Pie would never, ever have any impact on my thighs... riiiiight... :-)

I whipped up this card last night to play along with the brand new and improved Wednesday Stamp Club in the MFT Forum on Splitcoaststampers. From here on out they are focusing on sketch challenges! WOOT! I highly approve of this decision. :-) (Like they care whether or not I approve, but anyway...)

I love this adorable girl in the a la modes set What's Cooking! And that message is perfection. I think this set may be out of stock at the moment, I couldn't find it in the MFT store to link it up directly. I love the Little Yellow Bicycle paper too - I couldn't resist it when I saw all those whisks!! I paper pieced her (MY!) bowl and pants with the paper to tie it all together with the background.

And now on to the recipe. Onion Pie. Doesn't it look divine? Our Christmas dinner would not be complete without one. Or three. My Dad was saying he needed one pie just for him this year...


1 c finely crushed saltines

1/2 stick butter or margarine (for crust)

1/4 stick butter or margarine (for filling)

3 c thinly-sliced white onions

3/4 c milk

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 tsp salt

dash of pepper

1/2 c shredded sharp cheese


Place 1/2 stick of butter in 9" glass pie plate. Melt in 300 oven, about 5 minutes. Add crumbs and mix with a fork to coat. With a tablespoon, spread and press crumbs on bottom and sides of pie plate. Set aside. (increase oven temp to 350)

In large skillet, melt 1/4 stick butter. Add onions, cook over medium heat, stirring often 'til tender, but do not brown. Place onions in pie shell. In saucepan, beat eggs lightly, add milk, salt & pepper. Heat, stirring constantly - do not boil. Pour over onions in pie shell. Top with shredded cheese. Bake 30-35 minutes til crust is browned at edges. Serve bubbling hot.

Happy stamping AND happy cooking!

THEY loved this and now believe that it should be a staple in the house! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.
