TRIED ’N’ TRUE: A recipe for a family who loves onions

In our family, we love onions. My sister, Pam, sent me this recipe.

When Gene and I were first married I made everything with onions (his mother didn’t flavor her meals). They were good old country meals — meat, potatoes, gravy and desserts. My family also farmed but mother always flavored her meals with onions and garlic. Use whatever flavor crackers your family likes. Each different flavor of crackers makes a different taste. It’s wonderful and surprising. Thanks, Pam.

Onion Pie

30 small crackers (crushed)

1⁄2 cup margarine or butter (melted)

3 cups sliced onions

1⁄4 cup margarine

1⁄2 pound grated sharp Chedder cheese
