    Delicious! I served this pie alongside bratwurst and a green salad. Hubby said he thought it was the best dinner I'd made all year. We all loved it. Thank you for a keeper Miss Annie!

    I really loved this. My kids were not a crazy about it though. I was not sure what to expect, the flavor was very good. I could have ate this by itself for breakfast. I might try this again if I am going to have a lot of people over. See what they think.

    This tasted great! I've been trying all sorts of onion recipes and this one reminds me a lot of perogies.. yum. The only two things I would do differently for next time would be 1) use a homemade crust as store bought was too fragile to lift the pie piece out of the pie plate and 2) mix the onion/bacon mixture into the sour cream/egg mixture as in recipe#952. Otherwise it was great :)
