From: Shirley Goldstein
Originating from: Probably from Ladies Home Journal or Good Housekeeping magazine, they always had great recipes! Most of the time, I didn’t follow recipes or use cookbooks much.
Usually served this when: when having people over to the house.
This was a favorite when having company. It became a ‘regular’ at New Year’s Eve. Once I learned to do this, I made it all the time! It was a popular thing to serve (along with tamale pies).
Preparation time: 50-60 minutes
Temperature: 350 degrees
Ingredients and Directions:
Mix together thoroughly:
1 cup fine cracker crumbs
½ cup melted butter
Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of an 8” pie plate.
In skillet, sauté 2 cups thinly sliced onions in two tablespoons butter till transparent but not brown.*
Spoon into crumb lined pie plate and pour over them a mixture of 2 eggs (lightly beaten), ¾ cup milk, ¾ teaspoon salt and dash of peper.
Sprinkle top with ¼ cup shredded Cheddar cheese and little paprika. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or till knife comes out dry. Garnish with parsley and serve hot.
* For the test, I used red onions since that’s what I had in the kitchen, but the original pie probably had yellow onions, ed.
