Oh Goodness! I love, love, love this savory, chock full of Onions and Creme Fraiche pie! Rich with both Creme Fraiche and Sour Cream, we aren’t talking dessert here friends. We’re talking the perfect Luncheon dish with a fruit or a green salad. Or a wonderful supper side dish for anything Pork. This recipe came right from my Cuisine Suisse or “Swiss Cooking” book with just a few Karen adaptations. I can’t under any circumstances leave any recipe alone. I have to “fix” it. Yep…I know I’m bad. Anyway, the cookbook is authored by an Alfred Haefeli, Hrsg and based on this example, I’d say he’s a pretty fair cook! When I first saw this recipe it practically screamed my name. I love anything Onion and when you mix Onions with Creme Fraiche, Sour Cream and Eggs, there can be nothing in the world wrong with it! If you use a pre made pie crust, it’s snap to make, but even if you make your own crust as I did, this still goes together fast and the aroma of it baking will drive you wild!
Let’s go build a Swiss Onion Pie! This is what we’ll be using.
