I think this started as a copycat, however I have changed amounts and added an ingredient and now love the final product. serve it hot or cold with a salad, bread sticks and white wine.

This was so delicious. I chopped the onions really fine. Also, I had to cover the pie crust edges to keep from getting too brown. I used 1 lb. fresh crabmeat. I served this for brunch but would be great for supper as well. Thanks Diana, this an onion-lovers dream.
