Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare ingredients. Carefully clean leeks: cut off the stemmy bottoms and the dark green leaves, so you end up with with white and light green parts only - dirt can get in between the leaves, so wash them out well. Cut leeks lengthwise in quarters, then into about 1-inch squares.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet.
  3. Add the yellow and red onions and saute over moderate heat 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in wine, add cleaned leeks.
  5. Saute another 15 minutes, stir frequently, or until onions are golden and leeks are limp.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Preheat oven 350 degrees F.
  8. In mixing bowl, combine beaten eggs with two tablespoons of the parsley, dill, tarragon, feta cheese, pepper, and salt.
  9. Stir in the onion mixture.
  10. Oil a 10 inch tart pan and line bottom generously with bread crumbs.
  11. Pour in onion mixture.
  12. Ring the outside edge with tomato slice, then sprinkle the remaining parsley in the center.
  13. Sprinkle a light layer of bread crumbs over the entire top.
  14. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the mixture is set and top is golden.
  15. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes, then cut into wedges.
  16. (An adopted recipe.)

I took the advice and went with 4 onions. Worked well, though I could see even going with 5. The bread crumb bottom really ties it together. Great side dish. Would be good a brunch too.

Two eggs are not enough. I used three and it was still DRY (very tasty, but dry). Five or six would be much better - with two it was more like a pile of onions than an onion pie.
