Really delicious! I baked it without the crust to save on calories and fat and it was excellent, but I bet it would be fantastic with the crust. After reading past reviews I decided to make it a day in advance and it held together really well. Thanks for sharing the keeper recipe.

Oh yum, this is soooo good! It is fluffy, slightly cheesy (even though I used a little less than what was called for) and has a great crust on top. Everyone loved this. The raw onion (I used a regular one) got really sweet during the baking and that was such a nice touch. YUM!
As we were a little short on time we skipped the bottom crust, but Im sure it would have been a nice addition.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, WICC! :)
