A delicious, savory pie. If preferred, use Red Leicester cheese instead of Cheddar.

The pie seemed to go over well at the pot luck lunch. It tasted okay cold, but I think it would taste more fantastic hot (but that wasn't an option for me for this lunch). Modifications: Instead of using two regular onions, I used one regular onion, a Spanish onion, and a red onion. I sauteed them in butter until limp and translucent. Also, I used more than one cup of cheese and two eggs instead of one.

I, as well, browned the onions first instead of boiling them. I also added more cheese. It turned out yummy.
