Potato Onion Pie

01 Jan

6 cups shredded hash brown potatoes
6 tablespoons butter, divided
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 cup diced sweet onion
1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup milk


Gently squeeze potatoes to remove excess water. Melt 5 tablespoons butter; add to potatoes along with 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Press in bottom and up sides of a greased 9-in. pie plate to form a crust. Bake at 425 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until edges are browned. Cool to room temperature.

In a saucepan over medium heat, saute the onion and red pepper in remaining butter until tender, about 6-8 minutes.
Spoon into crust; sprinkle with cheese. Combine the eggs, milk and remaining salt; pour over onion mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
