  5. In a small skillet, sauté the sweet onions in oil until they’re tender; let them cool.

  7. Add the half-and-half and milk to the egg and cheese mixture gradually; process until the mixture is well blended.

  9. Sprinkle the scallions, chives, and sauteed onions over the crust.
  10. Pour the egg mixture over the onions; top with Parmesan cheese.
