The Best Onion Pie You’ve Ever Had

Italian Appetizer

This is one of my go to recipes when I need an appetizer quick and easy!


  • 8 Tbs Softened Butter
  • One Full Sleeve of Crackers +6 More
  • 2 Cups Onions
  • 1 ½ cups Swiss cheese (actually you can use any cheese you like but this seems to work best)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350º 

Smear 6 tablespoons of softened butter all over a 10-inch pie plate. 

Crush one full sleeve plus about 6 crackers more of Ritz crackers. Pour these into the buttered dish and press hard to make a fairly firm crust. 

Fry 2 cups of thinly sliced onions in 2 tablespoons of butter for about 3-5 minutes, until soft.  Take off heat and mix in 1 ½ cups Swiss cheese (actually you can use any cheese you like but this seems to work best), 2 eggs beaten until frothy, 1 cup milk and salt and pepper, to taste. 

Carefully pour all this into the pie shell and bake for 1 hour or until the top is golden brown.  Let sit for 5 minutes before serving. 


You will wish you made two when you see how fast this disappears! 


Buon Mangiata!
