Amazing! I just love this savory pie. And you must must must use the Caraway seed - it adds a very special flavor.

Made as a *pressie* for the Dec Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap & Dec Photo Forum International X-Mas Foods & Customs events ~ This recipe took me back to a time growing up when we were blessed w/the influence of my Great-Uncle Emil Placek who married into our Irish family & taught us to appreciate the food of Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic), Germany & Poland. The use of onion, sour cream & caraway seed are common to many delicious recipes in these countries & this lived up to my memories. I made my own crust using Shortcrust Pastry by ImPat, halved the recipe, made it in a 10-in rd baking dish (perfect) & it easily made 8-10 generous servings for Christmas Eve dinner ~ so 2 pies would serve at least 16 as a side-dish IMO & improve the nutritional data even more. This is an easy-fix that cuts easily & is definitely comfort food for the onion lovers among us. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
