Onion Potato Pie Recipe

Onion Potato Pie Recipe

I found the basic potato pie recipe in a cookbook and added the sweet onions, for which our area is famous. I've used this recipe for brunches and as a side dish for a main meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 cup diced sweet onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk

Directions

  • 1. Gently squeeze potatoes to remove excess water. Melt 5 tablespoons butter; add to potatoes along with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Press in bottom and up sides of a greased 9-in. pie plate to form a crust. Bake at 425° for 25-30 minutes or until edges are browned. Cool to room temperature.
  • 2. In a saucepan over medium heat, saute the onion and red pepper in remaining butter until tender, about 6-8 minutes. Spoon into crust; sprinkle with cheese. Combine the eggs, milk and remaining salt; pour over onion mixture.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 6-8 servings.
