i needed to cook it an extra 15 minutes, but it was wonderful- i added some ground pepper and nutmeg,and some chopped canadian bacon, sauteed with the onions

This is fabulous! Following chia's lead, I added some chopped bacon to the onions, and supplemented about half of the chives with green onions. I used a full-lard pie crust, which worked great with the savoury flavour. This came to a potluck in honour of a retiring co-worker, and was the first thing to disappear from the table. 30 hungry librarians wouldn't steer you wrong. ;) Thanks! edited to add a variation by Arostook: Reduce chopped onions to 1 tbls and add two cups of fresh mushroom.

This is the second time I have made this recipe, goes to show I think it is really good. I made it as I did last time by adding some proscuitto and also a little flaked chili to the breadcrumbs but this time I used only green onions. I think I liked it better with just all green onions.
