Not a vidalia onion season has gone by without being asked to make it several times. I am always asked for the recipe. I only use 4 Tablespoons of butter in the crust (saltines do not work, you must use Ritz type crackers). I use whole milk instead of half and half, but nonfat or lowfat milks don't cut it. Topped with about a cup of cheese, this pie is an awesome side for grilled meats.

This makes a delicious & easy side dish and substitutions work well. I used a variety of left over crackers and a mix of swiss and asiago cheeses. I also added thyme but any of your favorite herbs would work well.

We all love this recipe. I have made it for the last 7 Christmases, once I got the recipe out of my mother-in-law : ) Hers was very specific stating 52 ritz crackers and if Vidalia Onions aren't in season, add sugar to the onions while sauteing them. I am a big fan of sweetening the onions, so do it even when the Vidalia onions are in season. I also make it 1-2 days ahead and just reheat the day of, to free oven space (the microwave even works...gasp!). Enjoy!
