  1. I ended up melting the butter separate and whisking it with the eggs. I used 5 eggs and could have used 6. If I make it again I will add it bacon in the egg mixture. I also added some leftover fondue cheese I had in the fridge. This recipe has the potential to be - Read more ...
  2. This really didn t fill up the pie shell maybe one more onion and an additional egg??? I cooked for an additional 5 minutes and I think another 5 may have been even better. The recipe writer really gives you no idea what to look for as far as doneness; i.e. golden brown knife inserted - Read more ...
  3. Delicious simple and quick! I used Walla Walla sweet onions and sauteed them until they were caramelized. I left off the bacon but next time I think I'll make a bacon and mushroom topping to put on after the pie is baked for those who want it.

(Even my three-year-old ate a sizeable piece of this.) One commented that he might like - Read more ...
  9. This was amazingly easy and tasty. I had 2 bunches of leeks I needed to get rid of so I used them as well. This one's a keeper.
  10. I made these into little tartlets for a party appetizer. I cut the pie crust into little circles with a cookie cutter and pressed them into my muffin pan. I put the sauteed onions in the cups and poured the egg to about half-full. I put the crumbled bacon on top before baking. They were - Read more ...
