SAVORY ONION POTATO PIE
1 Tbls butter 2 medium sized onions, chopped coarsely 3 eggs
3/4 cup skim milk 3-4 medium-sized potatoes, unpeeled, cooked, cubed
3 1/2 ounces Gruyere or other Swiss cheese, grated 1/2 tsp salt
black pepper to taste a sprinkle of grated nutmeg
Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add onions and sauté , stir-
ring often, until slightly browned, but not quite transparent, approximately
10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
Beat eggs and milk together. Stir in cooked potatoes, grated cheese, salt, pep-
per, and nutmeg. Pour into a deep 9 1/2 inch pie plate and bake for 30 minutes
or until beautifully golden on top and fully set. Serves 6.
Variations: For a really deep and full flavor, substitute smoked provolone for
all or part of the Swiss cheese. For a special occasion, bake filling in a pie
crust—it will become an elegant quiche!
