  • 1 ½ cups buttery round crackers, crumbled

  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 2 cups thinly sliced sweet onions

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives

  • ¾ cup whole milk

  • 2 eggs

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 pinch paprika

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Combine crackers and 4 tablespoons of butter in a mixing bowl until well blended. Press into the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of an 8-inch pie plate to form a crust. Refrigerate until needed.

  3. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Sauté onions and garlic slowly until tender, about 12 minutes; spoon into prepared crust.

  4. Beat eggs, whole milk, chives, and salt in a bowl until blended; pour over the onions and sprinkle with cheese and paprika.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Garnish with parsley and serve hot or at room temperature.
