Have you ever made a recipe - loved it - and then couldn't find it again? That is what happened to me with this delicious side dish. I made this 5 years ago - loved it - and then lost the recipe! Once in a while I would try to Google the recipe, but I knew that what I found was not the exact recipe. Well, over Christmas when I was looking for another recipe - this one fell out of a book. YEAH ME! Throw a salad on a plate with a slice of this pie - and you are set with one super supper! This is adapted from a recipe in the Cooking Light Magazine -2001.
Onion Pie 1 cup low-fat baking mix (such as reduced fat Bisquick) 1/3 cup 2% reduced-fat milk cooking spray 1 Tablespoon Butter 2 cups chopped sweet onions 1 (8oz) block 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened 1 large egg 1/2 cup 2% reduced-fat milk 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup french fried onions Dash of hot sauce
1. Preheat oven to 350. 2. Combine baking mix and 1/3 cup milk. Lightly coat hands with cooking spray. Press dough into bottom and up sides of a 9 inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. As you can see by the pictures, I did not get the crust up the sides - and that is fine.
3. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, cook 5 minutes or until tender - do not brown. Stir occasionally. Spoon onion into prepared crust.
4. Place cream cheese and egg in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add 1/2 cup milk, salt, and hot sauce. Pour cream cheese mixture over onion. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until set. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Yields 6 servings. (Half way through baking time I sprinkle french fried onions on top)
This is a great way to use up those onions sitting in your bin right now!
