Creamy Onion Pie

Did the name stop you? No, it’s not a dessert! It’s a side dish that’s a super go-along for meat, chicken, or fish. We got the original version of this from a viewer who is from Ireland, but we think it’s a cross-cultural hand-me-down.

What You’ll Need:

3 tablespoons butter
3 onions, sliced (about 2-1/2 cups)
1 pie crust (from a 15-ounce package), baked according to package directions
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon paprika

What To Do:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In a large skillet over high heat, melt butter. Saute onions 5 to 6 minutes, separating into rings; reduce heat to medium, cover, and saute 4 to 5 more minutes, or until tender. Place sauteed onions in pie crust.

3. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, sour cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Pour mixture over onions and sprinkle top with paprika.

4. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Note: Of course this works fine with yellow or white cooking onions, but for a real knockout success, use sweet onions!
