Vidalia Onion Pie

The Vidalia onions we love here in the South are going to be plentiful soon. This is quite a take on a "pie", but it is delicious and different from the usual vegetable dishes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Ritz cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 stick of butter, melted
  • 2 cups of Vidalia onions, sliced thin
  • 2 Tbsp. butter

It always makes me smile when I see something about Vidalia onions. I live about an hour from Vidalia "onion country" and have seen them being harvested many, many times when I worked in that area several years ago. This recipe sounds interesting so I will pass it on to my sisters. All of them eat onions but I don't. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Hope you get some of the onions soon. If you don't, you can email me and I can give you the name of where to order some.
