making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Sweetie Sweet® Onion Pie
1 frozen pie crust, unthawed
1 large Sweet Sweet® onion, peeled, halved and sliced very thin (use a mandolin if you have one or a very sharp knife)
5 large eggs
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream or half-and-half
1 cup Swiss or Gruyere cheese, shredded
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat your oven to 400 F.

Whisk together milk, cream salt, pepper and half of the cheese in a mixing bowl.

Arrange onions into pie crust evenly. Sprinkle half of cheese onto top of onions. Pour milk mixture over the pie. Bake for 1 hour, until the pie rises and becomes golden brown. Remove from oven and let stand for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
