Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups roughly chopped Vidalia onions, or other sweet onions
  • 1 1/4 cups Ritz cracker crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Instructions

  • Add the 2 tablespoons of butter to a large pan and cook vidalia onion over medium heat until starting to soften. You want the onion to still have a little bite so don't cook them too long. Remove from heat.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix cracker crumbs with the 5 tablespoon melted butter and press into the bottom and up the sides of a lightly greased 9-inch pie plate.
  • Spoon vidalia onions on top of crust.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and Tabasco sauce. Pour mixture over onions.
  • Sprinkle cheese and paprika on top.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
