box refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
3/4
cup coarsely chopped red onion
2
eggs
1/2

1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon red pepper sauce
3/4
cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese (3 ounces)
Additional chopped red onion, if desired

Expert Tips

For a sit-down, eat-with-a-fork appetizer, double the filling ingredients (except use 3 eggs) and bake in one pie crust placed in an 11x1-inch tart pan or 9-inch pie plate. Bake about 30 minutes or until set; let stand 20 minutes before cutting into wedges.

Vary the cheese in these appetizers, and you'll have a whole new appetizer! Pesto-garlic cheese, Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers or bacon cheese add their own special flavors. If you are short of time, check out the preshredded cheeses in your supermarket--you may be surprised at your options.
