Cheese and Onion Pie


My dad used to call those bits before a meal as hor-dervies. He would have loved this recipe. Onions were his favorite food!

I gave you this recipe before but maybe you were foolish enough not to try it. Better luck this time!

Three ingredient Cheesy Onion Pie

Four cups of chopped onions

Four cups of grated cheese (I like Cheddar

Unbaked pie crust for a deep dish two-crust pie

Stir onions and cheese together. Pack into a deep pie plate lined with pastry. Add top crust, pierce it, and bake at 425 degrees F. for ten minutes, and then 350 degrees for another 30-35 minutes until onions are soft and crust is baked. Serve hot or cold.

For a larger crowd, use a 9×13 pan and a thinner layer of filling. Cut in squares to serve.

Just like my pie, some people find it hard to believe that Jesus, the Son of God, took human form, came to earth, was crucified for our sins and then was raised from the dead.

Are you willing to try my pie…and my Jesus?

But he was pie-rced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed (Isaiah 53:5, NIV).






Cheese and Onion Faith

Scholars estimate that Moses needed fifteen hundred tons of food and four thousand tons of firewood every twenty four hours.

Keeping those folks watered and washed required about fifty million litres of water daily. To get them across the Red Sea in one night, he had to form them into a line more than three miles long. That meant the ‘road’ they travelled on through the Sea had to be at least three miles wide. Whew! How did he do it?

Hebrews 11:29a- By faith— the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land…

Moses did what he could and believed God for the rest.

I’ve been trying out that Moses faith and it reminds of my recipe for  Cheese and Onion Pie.

Toss four cups of chopped onions with four cups of grated cheddar cheese. Pack the mix into a deep pie plate lined with pastry. It will be too full. Pay no attention.

Stick all the mix into that pie shell. Add a top crust, pierce it, and plop it in the oven. Bake at 425 degrees F. for ten minutes and then 350 degrees for another 30-35. Serve it hot or cold. Yum!

For a crowd, line a 9×13 baking dish with pastry, follow the rest of the instructions. Cut into two
inch squares and serve.

Everyone always wants the recipe. They never believe that the only ingredients are cheese, onions and pastry.

“Haven’t you forgotten something?” they query? And I say, “Just try it.”

They do and when they serve this delicious dish to unbelieving others; they say “Just try it.”

I invite you to try my pie recipe and my God.

Then let him try you.
