Their sweetness comes through nicely in these moist wedges. TIP: 'Serve with soups and stews at dinner or with your favorite egg dishes at brunch,' Libby recommends."

  1. In a large skillet, cook onion in 2 tablespoons butter over medium-low heat until very tender and lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Beat egg and milk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Set aside 2 tablespoons onion mixture; fold remaining mixture into batter. Fold in 1/2 cup cheese. Pour into a greased 9-in. pie plate. Top with remaining cheese and reserved onion mixture. Sprinkle with poppy seeds.
  3. Melt remaining butter; drizzle over the top. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Cut into wedges; serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.

This is ridiculously good! We look forward to Vidalia season just for this treat. I don't use the popyseeds because they stick between your teeth.

Very good. Came out moist and delicious. My only modification was adding about a quarter cup of corn meal to add a bit of texture.

Not bad,it's more of a crustless quiche than a bread for me. I had no time and energy to sautee the onions before putting them in the batter, so I skipped that, but it was okay anyway.
