ZiZi’s Simple Cheese Onion Pie

ZiZi’s Simple Cheese Onion Pie My mother made this when I was small. I’m not much of a baker, so I use store bought pie shells – not the frozen type. While not totally as wonderful as mom’s crust, it’s pretty darned close. Note: if you don’t have sweet onions available, I’ve found that steaming regular yellow onions works very well as a substitute. A great dish reheated as well.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Place one pie crust into a deep-dish pie pan. Layer the bottom with half of the onions and half of the cheese. Season to taste with pepper. Layer with the remaining onions and cheese; season with pepper. Pour milk over the pie filling. Place the remaining pie crust on top of the filling. Make small holes in the crust to allow steam to escape.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes. Remove, and let cool 15 minutes before serving.
