  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Pinch of nutmeg or curry powder


  1. Melt butter or margarine in a saucepan and add onions. Stir until well coated with butter, then cook over medium heat until golden here and there.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients. Add to onions and pour into a buttered 1-quart casserole.
  3. Bake uncovered for 25 to 30 minutes at 275 degrees F or until set like a custard.
