Given up sweets for Lent? On the Atkins diet?  Still craving pie?  This savory mini pie is perfect for you---and all other non-vegans.  It's a beautiful, quite simple, morning treat that barely takes 3.14 minutes of effort to make!

I was inspired by a link my friend sent me to make eggs in onion rings.  Then I had the bright idea that I could use the end of the onion and turn it into a pi(e) for this contest.  When I saw this reddit post wanting more directions, I knew I better act soon before the internet community scooped me!

Step 1: Ingredients

1 egg
1 onion slice
salt and pepper

1. Slice the onion towards one of the ends so that it forms a small bowl.  This will be your "pie crust"
I successfully used the medium and large slice in this photo.  The small slice would not have contained an entire egg.

The salt and pepper will be for the topping.  You could substitute cayenne pepper, curry powder, rosemary, or other spices.

I like your egg pie idea. I wonder, you might try separating the white and yolk and whipping the egg white with seasoning, then pouring the white into the onion shell and placing the yolk in the center. I don't know if it would leak out the bottom since that would break the whites tension, but I've made flavored sunny side ups that way. I've got to buy some onions to try this!
What a great idea! I was trying to think of ways to season it without just sprinkling sprinkling spices on top. I'll have to try this soon!
This looks amazing. I love eggs and onions together. This would be great for brunch. :D
I hadn't thought of it as a great brunch food, but you're right! What a great idea---now I just need to invite some people over for brunch:)
Interesting idea. Much healthier than most pies, that's for sure! Thanks for sharing, and good luck in the contest!
Thanks for the good wishes.
This is an awesome idea, I'm going to definitely try it. Love the 3.14 reference too lol.
Haha, thanks for appreciating the joke. They really are so easy. I hope you have fun making and eating them.
