Recipe by Chef-Boy-I-Be Illin

We received a pound of sweet Walla Walla onions with this week's shipment of farm produce from our CSA and I wanted a quick and easy way to use them. I had zwiebelkuchen (German onion pie) in mind, and while the recipes on 'Zaar looked delicious, they also looked time consuming. So I took what I thought were the best ideas and used a pre-made crust. My partner and I thought the result was delicious and hope you do too!
