    Daydream's Note:

    Cheese and onion are old friends and were made to go together. This delicious savory pie is super easy to prepare with store-bought sheets of puff pastry, and is great for brunch, or for dinner with a large tossed salad. From the "Everyday Vegetarian".

      This is such a keeper! I slow cooked the onions for about 20 min, the flavor became quite subtle, otherwise followed it exactly. Bet to let it rest a bit out of the oven as the insides are melted cheese runny. Taste is fabulous. Kept part of it for later so put it in the frig. Cut off a slice and found i excellent cold - so this cold be a marvelous appetizer for parties, but I think it's definitely special main dish. And it's so easy!

      Rich, tasty and YUMMY. Love the taste of mustard and worcestershire sauce in the background. Great idea to have a salad with it.
