Onion Pie

Comment on this recipe

Super for a buffet table. Serve hot or room temperature

Ingredients

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 extra large sweet yellow onions, sliced thin
1/4 cup water
1 egg
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
4 fresh basil leaves, torn in small pieces or 1/2 tespoon dried basil
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 package frozen bread dough or 1 package pizza dough

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and have ready a 9-inch greased pie pan. Put oil and onions into a large skillet over medium-low heat and cook the onions until they begin to soften. Add water, cover and simmer until the onions are completely soft. With a slotted spoon, place onions in a bowl; discard most of the liquid. Add the remaining ingredients, except the dough, and stir until well-blended. Set mixture aside. Divide the dough in half and place on a well-floured board. Roll it into a circle larger than the pie pan, about 1/8-inch thick. If you use pizza dough, it will be very thin. Gently lift the bottom crust into the pie pan, pressing to fit. Add the onions. Roll the rest of the dough to the same size and make several slashes for steam in the center of the crust. Fit the top crust onto the pie and firmly seal the edges. Brush a little olive oil on top. Place the pie on a middle rack. Bake for 30 minutes or until the pie is light brown and sounds hollow when tapped on top. Remove to a wire rack and let cool about 15 minutes. Yield: 6-8 servings.

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
