Well well well! Your mamas sure had a lot to say, now didn’t they?
I have gotten such a kick out of all the responses to our little contest. Keep ’em coming!
I wanted to share something with y’all, that I just know you’re going to love.
Last week a sweet blog friend, Collins, sent me a recipe for a pie that I knew I had to try right away.
I did, and sure enough it’s every bit as good as it sounds and THEN some.
It goes like this:
Vidalia Onion Pie
1 1/4 cups ritz cracker crumbs
2 cups thinly sliced vidalia onions
3/4 cup milk (full fat, of course)
3/4 t. salt
dash of pepper
1/4 – 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Mix together cracker crumbs and 1/2 stick of melted butter. Press into a 8″ pie plate. Chill. Saute onions in 2 T. butter until soft. Spoon into crust. Mix lightly beaten eggs with milk, salt, and pepper and pour over onions. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Serves 4-6.
Of course, Collins is a Georgia girl, so when she thinks “sweet onion” she thinks Vidalia. Being a Texas gal myself though, I was hoping to use 1015s or Noondays, but found neither. I settled for something called a Texas Dandy, and was really pleasantly surprised. The result was a very mild, yummy savory pie.
We ate it with steak and salad for dinner, and then all by itself for lunch the next day. Heaven. Pure D.
So, in honor of all things pie, and in the hopes that more of you will dig out your pie recipes and share them, I’ve created the new Blue Yonder Pie List over on the side bar.
Got a pie you love? Post it on your blog, then leave a comment here or over on the pie list, and I’ll add you to the list!
If you don’t have a blog, but you DO have a wonderful pie, email the recipe to me here: blueyondergirl (at) mac (dot com). We’ll try it out and post it up!
Now, get out those recipe boxes!
