Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min.
- 6 to 8 medium onions, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 6 large eggs
- 1 cup soft bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
- In a large skillet, saute onions in oil until soft but not browned; drain well. In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Stir in the bread crumbs, cheese, parsley and onions.
- Place in a greased 10-in. pie plate. Bake at 350° until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes.
Editor's NoteTo make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.

Good use of onions before they go soft or bad. Followed Lizdy's suggestions of using butter and salt. Used dried parsley but could have used some kind of spice to kick it up a notch so will experiment next time.

I absolutely LOVE (raw) onions...not so much cooked onions; however, I wanted to try this and my husband and I decided this is a KEEPER!! We had it as a side with steak and I had 2 pieces (and less steak--cut the steak up for our Golden). Easy and delicious! THANK YOU!

I've made this twice now for family get togethers and it was a hit both times. The first time the only change I made was omitting the parsley because we were out.The 2nd time, still omitted parsley, but I used 3 tbs of butter instead of 2 tbs canola oil and also salted the onions lightly to taste while cooking them in the pan before adding to egg mixture, and then sprinkled Parmesan cheese over the top of the whole mixture just before placing it in the oven. We liked it even more this time and no left overs! Even my couple of kids who think they don't like onions came back for seconds. Delicious!
