Manager of Historic Trades, Sam Murphy, shares with us his recipe for "Onion Pie" 

Ingredients:

 4 small Yukon Gold potatoes 2 large Granny Smith apples 2 medium yellow onions 8 large eggs 3 tsp. Kosher salt 1 tsp. freshly cracked pepper 1⁄2 to 1 grated nutmeg 1⁄2 to 1 tsp. mace 4 oz. butter frozen puff pastry or homemade pie crust 
Directions:

 1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 2. Boil and slice the eggs. 3. Pare and slice the potatoes, apples and onions. Slice everything 1⁄4 inch thick. Place the apples and potatoes in a bowl of water to prevent oxidation. 4. Roll out the bottom crust and set it into the pie pan. 5. Mix the salt, pepper, nutmeg and mace to together in a single bowl. 6. Drain and dry the apples and potatoes with a towel. 7. Begin the layers from the bottom up with potatoes, then eggs, then apples and then onions. Sprinkle each layer with a little of the seasoning and little bits of butter. Continue filling and seasoning the pie until you are out of ingredients. 8. Put a top crust on the pie and crimp the edges. Cut 4 or 5 slashes on top crust to allow steam to vent out. 9. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is a nice golden brown.
