My grandmother and mother always make onion pie during the holidays, but it's good any time. This is a savory side dish that you can serve with almost any meat or main course. It's especially good with roast beef. —Mary West, Marstons Mills, Massachusetts

Ingredients

  • 6 to 8 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute onions in oil until soft but not browned; drain well. In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Stir in the bread crumbs, cheese, parsley and onions.
  2. Place in a greased 10-in. pie plate. Bake at 350° until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes.
Soft Bread Crumbs
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
