Onion Pie – Have you tried it?

posted in: Recipes | 0

Most people think of apple pie, lemon pie, strawberry pie, etc. but who would have thought of onion pie?! Well, it seems a bit more popular than what I realized. I had never heard of it before until recently.

At first, it doesn’t sound very appetizing, at least to me, but my family decided to make it anyway, just to see what it would taste like. You can find the recipe here



So, what are the ingredients? They’re mostly what you may already have in your kitchen: onions (of course), flour, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, ginger, and clove. Sounds like an apple pie, doesn’t it? Except that you use onions instead.

We made our regular pie crust and put it in a deep dish, 8 x 8.  Lightly saute the onions, we mixed in the spices. After mixing everything well, we poured the mixture into the dish to bake. A little ice cream and coffee completes this snack.
