Onion Pie
Delicious! If you like onion blooms or onion rings, you’ll like this pie.
I tried this recipe while I was snowed in last weekend and was it ever good! It's from the Lyons (Nebraska) Methodist Cookbook published in 1991. The recipe was submitted by Phyllis Hensley.

1 ½ Cups Ritz Crackers, crushed
5 Tblsp butter

5 Tblsp butter
3 cups onions, sliced thin

2 eggs
1 cup milk

½ cup cheese, grated
salt & Pepper to taste
½ Cup Ritz Crackers, crushed

Mix 1 ½ cups cracker crumbs with 5 tablespoons melted butter. Press into pie plate.

Saute onions with remaining butter until limp. Spoon onions into pie shell.

Mix together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour over onions. Sprinkle cheese over onions and sprinkle with remaining ½ cup crumbs. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.

Here is a sauce I concocted to go with it:
½ cup mayonnaise
3 Tblsp horseradish sauce
1 tsp Louisana hot sauce or tobasco
¼ cup ketchup
Mix thoroughly.
