German Onion Pie 


german onion pie recipe

I love onions. I can’t get enough of them and put them in pretty much every dish!
The health benefits coming from an onion are amazing. I posted about it a few months ago (click here to see the article).

If you never had an Onion Pie, you definitely need to try it. The sweetness of the onion evolves so perfectly in this dish and combined with the creaminess of the filling and crunchiness of the crust, this is a dish that will be enjoyed by the whole family!

Originally you make this dish with a yeast bottom, but since I had no time the day I made it, I decided for the “cheater-version” of it and used a store bought pie crust 😉
