Amish Onion Pie

I love onions, so the prospect of an onion pie is next to nirvana for me.  But even for those who don't like onions, you might like this pie.  It's a savory, hearty dish that can easily be a meal.  I love visiting Lovina's during "onion season" because there's a good chance she'll serving this dish.  Here is the recipe.


Amish Onion Pie

4 thick slices of bacon, diced

2 cups peeled and chopped yellow onion

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

1 9-inch pie shell, unbaked

* Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Sauté onion until clear and pour cooked onion into a large mixing bowl. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, chop and add to onion; mix well. Stir in sour cream. Beat eggs enough to break up yolks, then mix into pie mixture.

* Add flour to thicken mixture (onions will create a lot of water), then add salt. Mix well and pour mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle top with caraway seed if desired. Bake in preheated oven for about 1 hour, or until onions start to turn golden brown on top.

Mmmmm!  Sounds good!  Have you ever heard comedian Jim Gaffigan's skit on bacon?  It is so funny!  He says that bacon is like the fairy dust of the food community.  "See this baked potato...bippity boppity bacon..... now it's your favorite part of the meal!".
