[color:"blue"]Zwiebelkuchen (German Onion Pie)[/color]

Ingredients
6 pounds onions, sliced
4 slices bacon
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
4 egg
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg (or caraway seeds, I prefer nutmeg)
1 recipes pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a large tart pan with 1 pastry shell, extending up the sides.
2. Saute onion in a skillet until translucent and pour cooked onion into a large mixing bowl. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, chop and add to onion; mix well.
3. Stir in sour cream. Beat eggs enough to break up yolks, then mix in to pie mixture. Add flour to thicken mixture (onions will create a lot of water), then add salt. Mix well and pour mixture into prepared pan. Sprinkle top with nutmeg.
4. Bake in preheated oven for about 1 hour, or until onions start to turn golden brown on top.

That looks pretty close to a recipe for bacon and onion quiche that I have made a couple of times. Huhm, quiche sounds good!!

yes Carol, very similar to a quiche, but the ratio of onions to eggs is much larger...
the eggs here are more of a binder than a base to the dish...
you can make it very oniony (traditional) by using spanish onions...
or very sweet, by using a Chillean or Peruvian or Texas 1015 or Walla-Walla onions...
or halfway in between by using Vidallia Onions...

I like onions, but I think that your recipe is a bit too much onions, even for me! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Smile.gif" alt="" />

I would need to tie a string around my ankle to keep from flying away from all the gas Onion Pie would give me! Good lord, those Germans must have stomachs of steel! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />


If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning. [Linked Image]

It won't happen if you use the Texas 1015's, Walla-Walla or South American Ultra Sweet Onions...
Definately will if you use Spanish Yellow Onions!

sweet onions contain more sugars and fewer sulfur-containing compounds than other onions do.
My favorite sweet onions are the "OSO Sweets" from Chile, South America... they have about 15+% sugar content...

I keep looking at this recipe. I'm going to search my little town and try to find those onions. If I do, then I'll try it!

What would you serve as an entree with it?

Entre with it??? I would think this would be the entre. You serve possibly a salad and some bread and a dessert with it. Sounds like a lovely meal to me!

Carol, you are right! salad/bread/dessert is great accompaniment! you really don't need anything else...

although this would go great with Beer Braised German Sausages... like Bratwurst, etc... if you want a meat entree...
