Onion Potato Pie

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.
  • Makes
    6-8 servings


  • 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 shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup whole milk


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

    This recipe sounds good and I'd love to try it but 8 'cups' of hashbrowns for the crust? Can someone confirm that measurement, please?
