Crust: 1 Frozen deep pie crust
1/4 egg yolk and 1 teaspoon water for egg wash
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 pounds Vidalia onions, thinly sliced (2 or 3 Onions)
3 large eggs, beaten
1 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon kosher or Hawaiian salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Freshly grated Parmesan

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
For the filling: Brush egg wash on the inside of pie crust. Return to refrigerator until filling is ready. Over medium heat, melt butter. Add onions and saute until translucent. Do not brown. Combine eggs, sour cream and flour. Add onion mixture. Season with salt and pepper and pour into chilled pie crust. Top with Parmesan. Bake for 20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F for the last 20 minutes or until center is set.
I like to add some veggies in this as well. Peas, spinach, mushrooms, or grated carrots work nice. I also sometimes substitute a purple onion for one of the sweet onions. You could also add bacon or sausage to give some substance. I like to have an extra pie crust handy, in case the filling mixture is too much from all the additional stuff I put in there.
