ZiZi's Simple Cheese Onion Pie

"My mother made this when I was small. I'm not much of a baker, so I use store bought pie shells - not the frozen type. While not totally as wonderful as mom's crust, it's pretty darned close. Note: if you don't have sweet onions available, I've found that steaming regular yellow onions works very well as a substitute. A great dish reheated as well."

  2. Place one pie crust into a deep-dish pie pan. Layer the bottom with half of the onions and half of the cheese. Season to taste with pepper.

I love onions so I was really excited to try this recipe, but the onions did not get done, the cheese was almost non existent. Any ideas on what went wrong?

I have been making cheese & onion pies for many years.Cook & mash a couple of potatoes to the onion & grated cheese mix it really holds everything together and makes the filling go further.

Love this cheese and onion pie
