This was very good. You could easily double the amount of onions in this from a more onion flavor. Thanks for sharing.

Having read the reviews, I added some anchovie to the saute-ing onions. The result is a lovely eggy, light cake and is, indeed, great with a glass of wine.

We really liked this a lot stormy. It was full of flavour, dense & would be ideal served as a welcome departure from potatoes & paired w/grilled meat + salad greens. I tweaked it a tiny bit - used garlic salt instead of reg salt & next time will use a more generous amt of fresh or roasted garlic. To add a meat component, I poured half the batter into the pie plate, placed a layer of pre-cooked sliced sausage & added the rest of the batter. It was perfectly done in the exact time stated. DH thot it was too - he loved it! I'm so glad I picked this for the QQ's Cook Again Reunion. :-)
