    I absolutely LOVE (raw) onions...not so much cooked onions; however, I wanted to try this and my husband and I decided this is a KEEPER!! We had it as a side with steak and I had 2 pieces (and less steak--cut the steak up for our Golden). Easy and delicious! THANK YOU!

    I've made this twice now for family get togethers and it was a hit both times. The first time the only change I made was omitting the parsley because we were out.

    The 2nd time, still omitted parsley, but I used 3 tbs of butter instead of 2 tbs canola oil and also salted the onions lightly to taste while cooking them in the pan before adding to egg mixture, and then sprinkled Parmesan cheese over the top of the whole mixture just before placing it in the oven. We liked it even more this time and no left overs! Even my couple of kids who think they don't like onions came back for seconds. Delicious!

    My husband and I both really like this onion pie. Hope to make it often. It was so easy to half the recipe for the two of us.
