Cheese And Onion Pie

On Saturday morning  the plan was for Aneesh to take Ariyana to Ballet class while I hit the gym for a long run.  But I ended up getting sidetracked with random things that needed attention at home like paying bills and gathering Ariyana's old clothes to donate.  My desk was also starting to get cluttered and while I was organizing it I came across my mom's recipe for cheese and onion pie. She made this for lunch a couple of weeks ago during our visit home to Raleigh, North Carolina and all of us loved it. So my plan to go running didn't happen, but I was able to cross a few things off my "To Do" list  and I made this delicious cheese and onion pie for lunch.


1. 2 rolls of pastry dough (I am lazy and just use the Pillsbury ready made dough. 2 rolls come in a package)

2. 8 oz package of shredded cheese ( I used 1/2 pepper jack and 1/2 cheddar.  The pepper jack gives the pie a nice punch of flavor)

3. 2 eggs

4. 1 cup milk

5. 1 large onion (red or yellow onion is ok) chopped


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2. Saute onions until just clear. (about 5 min) Optional-add spinach and cook another minute.  Add onion and spinach mixture to the pastry lined pan.

3. Add the cheese on top of the onions/spinach mixture

4. Whisk together 2 eggs and the milk and pour over the cheese and onion mixture.

5. Place second sheet of pastry over the mixture, seal edges, and cut vents in the top.

6. Bake at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes.
