An Onion Pye

Hannah Glasse

Wash and pare some Potatoes, and cut them in Slices, peel some Onions, cut them in slices, pare some Apple and slice them, make a good Crust, cover your Dish, lay a quarter of a Pound of Butter all over, take a quarter of an Ounce of Mace beat fine, a Nutmeg grated, a Tea Spoonful of beaten Pepper, three Tea Spoonsful of Salt, mix all together, strew some over the Butter, lay a Layer of Potatoes, a Layer of Onions, a Layer of Apples, and a Layer of Eggs, and so on, till you have filled your Pye, strewing a little of the Seasoning between each Layer, and a quarter of a Pound of Butter in Bits, and six Spoonfuls of Water.  Close your Pye and bake it an Hour and a half.  A Pound of Potatoes, a Pound of Onion, a Pound of Apples, and twelve Eggs will do.

  1. The recipe does not describe how the eggs are done, but I am assuming that this would be 12 hard boiled eggs, sliced for each layer?
