    This Ecuadorian onion pie is filled with salty fresh queso fresco and parmesan cheese, mixed with sugary caramelized onions. Perfect for brunch, lunch, or as a dinner side.


    Ingredients
    3
    tablespoons
    unsalted butter
    2
    pounds
    White Onions, sliced
    3
    tablespoons
    white sugar
    3
    tablespoons
    heavy cream
    1
    cup
    Fresh White Cheese, grated
    1
    cup
    parmesan cheese, grated
    1
    egg, lightly beaten
    1
    9-inch pie crust
    Directions
    In a deep pan, melt the butter on medium heat.
    Add onions and saute until the water has evaporated, for about 8-10 minutes.
    Add sugar and heavy cream to the onions and cook for 8-10 minutes.
    Turn heat off and stir in both cheeses and egg. Set aside to cool.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Place onion mixture in a pre-greased 9-inch baking dish.
    Place dough over the onion mixture and pinch edges so there is no overlapping.
    Bake for 40-45 minutes or until crisp and golden.
    Let the pie cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
