German Zwiebelkuchen (Onion Pie) image

Zwiebelkuchen is an onion pie from Swabia, in south-central Germany. It is a special time of year, in the fall, when the mom & pop winemakers will open a BasinWirtschaft in their barn or garage. They serve the new wine, fresh zwiebelkuchen, and perhaps some wurst, for a minimal fee. A few tables are set up, and they are open when they have time to serve. To indicate they are serving, they will hang a straw broom over the doorway. The combination of the onions and the 'green' wine can have explosive consequences later on!

Vidalia Onion Pie image

A light dinner of Vidalia onion pie, a nice salad on the side, and a ice cold glass of homemade lemonade is perfect for hot summer nights! Optional additions can be sweet red pepper to the onions as they cook and/or crumbled bacon or fresh ham bits may be added to the mixture prior to baking. All versions are great! If desired, a couple Vidalia onion rings look great on the top of the pie for decoration!

Vertamae Smart-Grosvenor's Onion Pie image

Vertamae Smart-Grosvenor's 1970 cookbook, "Vibration Cooking, or the Travel Notes of a Geechee Girl," combined memoir and recipes in a new way, and introduced many readers to a brilliant new voice in American food culture. This onion-pie recipe is like many of her recipes, simple and deeply satisfying home cooking rooted in the South, but with a truly global point of view. If you want, you can toss a handful of cooked ham or grated cheese or fresh chopped herbs into the mix before putting it in the oven. It's especially delicious chilled, the next day, when the flavors have mellowed and the custard has become creamy.

Rustic Onion Pie image

Provided by The Hearty Boys

Categories     main-dish

Time 2h30m

Yield 12 to 18 pieces

Number Of Ingredients 9

4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 to 1 1/4 cups warm water
1/4 cup olive oil
10 anchovy fillets, optional
4 pounds Spanish onions, peeled and thinly sliced
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper


  • To make the dough, put the flour in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add the oil and salt. Stir together with a wooden spoon and slowly add the water until a dough begins to form. Turn out onto a well floured surface and knead until smooth. Divide the dough into 2 balls, flatten into disks, wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until ready to use.
  • To make the filling, pour the olive oil into a large pot and place it over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the anchovies and cook, stirring until they dissolve. Add the onions, salt and pepper, stir and cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent, about 20 to 30 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature. Grease the baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.
  • On a well floured work surface, roll out 1 of the disks to about 1/8-inch thick rectangle to fit the size of the sheet pan and line the pan with the dough. Spread the filling out over the dough, roll out the second disk a little larger than the sheet pan and place it over the onions. Crimp the edges, brush with olive oil and cut vent slits into the top. Transfer the pan into the top half of the oven and bake until the dough is golden brown, about 1 hour. Let cool, slice and serve at room temperature.


Vidalia Onion Pie image

Categories     main-dish

Time 2h

Yield 8 servings

Number Of Ingredients 15

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher or Hawaiian salt
1/4 cup cold all-vegetable shortening, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
Cold water
1/4 egg yolk and 1 teaspoon water for egg wash
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 pounds Vidalia onions, thinly sliced
3 large eggs, beaten
1 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon kosher or Hawaiian salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Freshly grated Parmesan


  • For the crust: All ingredients should be cold. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add shortening and butter. Using a pastry blender cut in the shortening and butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Drop by drop, add cold water. Mix in with the fingertips, not with the hands as the palms will warm the dough. Continue mixing water in until the dough begins to hold together without being sticky but not crumbly. Place dough in plastic wrap. Fold over plastic wrap and press down to form a disk. This will make rolling out easier after chilling. Finish wrapping in plastic and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • Lightly spray a deep 9-inch pie pan or an 8 1/2-inch fluted flan pan. Roll out dough and place in pie plate. Return to the refrigerator until filling is ready. Makes pastry for a 9-inch single crust pie.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • For the filling: Brush egg wash on the inside of pie crust. Return to refrigerator until filling is ready. Over medium heat, melt butter. Add onions and saute until translucent. Do not brown. Combine eggs, sour cream and flour. Add onion mixture. Season with salt and pepper and pour into chilled pie crust. Top with Parmesan. Bake for 20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F for the last 20 minutes or until center is set.


Savory Onion Pie image

Perfect for rainy (or snowy) days, when you can get up and get a plate of seconds easily. I make a two-crust pie, but most recipes for onion pie use just a bottom-crust. I use a shortening-based pie dough, which I think lets the flavor of the onions take center stage; though, a butter crust would certainly compliment the onions nicely. I've seen some recipes that call for bacon, and of course; bacon is just plain good. I think my recipe is pretty basic, so I look forward to seeing reviews with modifications. Enjoy!

Categories     Savory Pies

Time P1DT1h

Yield 1 9 inch pie, 8-12 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 15

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons butter
3 cups thinly sliced yellow onions
2 garlic cloves
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 cup flour
1 (8 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk


  • Prepare the pie crust in advance, hopefully overnight. I chilled the dough for 4 hours and it wasn't ready, so I made the dish the following evening. The dough cooperated much better the second night.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water slowly until mixture forms a ball. Only use as much as you need. Wrap in plastic, and refrigerate overnight, or at least 4-5 hours.
  • Roll out one of the balls of dough on counter. Set in 9" pie pan and refrigerate until needed.
  • Saute onions in butter, salt and pepper until tender, not brown. Spread over bottom layer pastry. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • Blend all remaining ingredients together. Pour over onions and cheese.
  • Take out the second ball of dough and roll it out for top crust. Be sure to cut slits for venting and secure the top to the bottom by pinching the edges, or use the tongs of a fork to press the top and bottom together.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes.
  • Cool 20 minutes and serve.

  • Make onion topping:
  • Heat butter and oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until foam subsides, then cook onion, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in thyme, salt, and pepper, then cool. Toss cheese with onion and spread in bottom of a 9 1/2-inch deep-dish glass pie plate.
  • Make crust:
  • Blend flour, baking powder and soda, and salt in a food processor. Add cheese and pulse 3 or 4 times to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  • Whisk together buttermilk and dry mustard in a small bowl and add to processor, then pulse until liquid is incorporated and dough begins to clump (do not let it form a ball).
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and fold it over on itself several times to lightly knead. Form dough into a ball and let stand, covered with plastic wrap, at room temperature 10 minutes.
  • Roll out dough between 2 sheets of plastic wrap into a 10-inch round. Remove top sheet of plastic wrap and flip dough over onto onion. Peel off remaining plastic and tuck dough inside rim of pie plate.
  • Bake pie in middle of oven until crust is golden brown and firm to the touch, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool pie on a rack 2 minutes, then invert a platter over pie and flip pie onto platter. Serve warm.
