Vidalia Onion Pie

Recipe by  

"A light dinner of Vidalia onion pie, a nice salad on the side, and a ice cold glass of homemade lemonade is perfect for hot summer nights! Optional additions can be sweet red pepper to the onions as they cook and/or crumbled bacon or fresh ham bits may be added to the mixture prior to baking. All versions are great! If desired, a couple Vidalia onion rings look great on the top of the pie for decoration!"

Been making this for years and it has never failed me (except for the time that I tried making it a little lower fat and used lo-fat sour cream ... don't do that ... it makes a mess!) Always a huge hit no matter who I serve it to. Whole family ADORES it - daughter has been known to hide leftovers at the back of the fridge for herself!

The hot sauce totally ruined this dish. Otherwise, you've basically got an onion quiche. Too bad.

Used 1/2 cup ricotta and 1/2 cup sour cream instead of 1c sour cream. Also. added a little romano w/ the parmesan. Instant hit w/ the family- everyone had seconds!

i made this recipe (for 2 pies) so i could take one to my boyfriend's mom's house and one to my mom's house thanksgiving day. besides being very easy to make, everyone at both houses loved it. needless to say, i will be making this recipe again soon! the only thing i would recommend when making them would be to keep out the 1/2 cup of butter - the butter used to cook the onions proved to be enough.

Tried this recipe and loved it. The only thing I did different was make a crust from ritz crackers and butter. And reserved some to sprinkle on top before baking. Excellent

I cut the recipe in half and made 1 pie. Delicious! I added more onions then reduced and carmelized them for that sweet flavor. Added chopped tomato and a few bacon bits. Excellent recipe!

This was wonderful! Many of my guests were hesitant about trying an onion pie but all of them raved about it! I used an unbaked pie crust since it seemed the amount of time to bake it was quite long and I feared burning a crust that was already baked. I covered the edges of the crust with foil strips. I also omitted the hot sauce. The pie was delicious and looked good too! I'll definitely try this again!

What a great recipe. I took it to friends to have with their dinner and they kept the leftovers. The taste was fabulous. Must make it again and soon.
