Onion Bacon Pie

09 May

Hello Everyone,

Here is a recipe I made over the weekend from Relish Magazine, I changed it a bit… We loved it, hope you like it too!! 🙂

Onion Bacon Pie:


1/2 cup cornmeal

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 large egg

2 tbsp. butter

2-4 tbsp. cold water


1 tbsp olive oil

3 medium onions, slivered

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 eggs

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese

1 cup corn kernels, either fresh or frozen

4 slices thick cut bacon, cooked and crumbled

To prepare crust, coat a 9-inch deep dish pie plate with cooking spray. Place cornmeal and flour in a bowl of a food processor fitted with a pastry cutter blade: pulse to combine. Add egg and butter; pulse until mixed. Add water, 1 tbsp. at a time, until a dough ball forms. This will form a wet sticky mass of dough. Press into pan. If the dough is too sticky, add a little cornmeal. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

To prepare filling, heat the oil in large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and saute 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Drain if necessary. Combine the onions, garlic, cream, eggs, cream, salt, peppers, cheese, corn and bacon together. Pour into pie crust. bake for 40 minutes, until top is light brown and just set. If it looks like it’s getting to dark, cover the top lightly with foil.

It has been really windy here today, felt like the wind was going to pick up our house and take it away! LOL!! Hope it quits soon!! I made 200 cupcakes for my aunt’s Mother’s Day thing at her church. Whew I’m wiped out! I baked and frosted them all yesterday and finished them up this morning. She wanted all white cupcakes, so that’s what I made for her…  Turns out I do have a bladder infection, that’s why I have been feeling so sick.. I thought it was the new medication (which it still could be) making me sick.. Hope it passes soon.. I haven’t found anything out about my back yet, it’s feeling better, hopefully I can get back to the Y next week… Need to get back..

Well goodnight all..

Amanda 🙂
