Green Onion Pie

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Top Review by jsunshinejull

My father planted an overabundance of green onions in our little garden for the winter, and I couldn't decide what to do with them (even I can't stand to eat fried rice and bean sprout pancakes that often!) but I finally decided on a recipe, and it was this one. I only used about a quarter of the onions, unfortunately. However, the pie turned out alright. I would cook this one a little longer and maybe strain the onions a little longer to make sure it doesn't end up soggy, but otherwise I like it. I had my hesitations (such as the one that came from seeing no seasonings or salt in the ingredients list) but this recipe is a good find.
