 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Onion, very thinly sliced
  • 7 tb Lard
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • 2 c Bread flour
  • 1 tb Baking powder
  • 3/4 ts Salt
  • 2/3 c Milk
  • 1 lg Egg
  • 3/4 c Sour cream


In a heavy skillet, cook the onion in 2 Tbsp lard, over mod-low heat,
stirring, until it is golden. Stir in the cayenne and salt and pepper to
taste. Reserve the mixture.

Onto a sheet of wax paper, sift together the flour, baking powder, and
salt. Sift the mixture again into a bowl. Add the remaining lard, and
blend the mixture until it resembles fine meal. Stir in the milk, stirring
until the dough is combined well. Turn out onto a floured surface and
knead it for 30 seconds. Pat into a 9-inch square, press it evenly into a
greased 9-inch baking pan and top with the onion mixture.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, sour cream, and salt and pepper to
taste. Pour this over the onion mixture, using a spatula to cover the
onion mixture evenly.

Bake in the middle of a preheated 450f oven for 20-25 minutes or until it
is cooked through. Cut into squares and serve hot.
