“This is a traditional French holiday side dish made without any cheese. It's also a very simple side dish that will impress other cooks at potluck parties.” - by Nadine S
Original recipe yields 10 servings
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Place the bacon into a skillet, and cook over medium heat until browned. Remove bacon from skillet, reserving 4 tablespoons bacon fat, and drain on paper towels.
- Place the onions into the same skillet with the bacon fat, and cook over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Combine the milk and cream in a bowl. Sprinkle the flour over the onions, and stir to blend. Stir in the milk mixture. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat, stir in the bacon, and set aside to cool 10 minutes.
- Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl until light colored and frothy. Stir a spoonful of the onion mixture into the eggs. Add another spoonful of the onion mixture, and continue stirring. Repeat, until all the onions have been stirred into the eggs and are thoroughly blended. Pour the mixture into the prepared pie shell. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
- Bake in preheated oven until the crust is lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool 5 minutes before serving.

"This is amazing. It's a little much for a weekday dinner but I can't wait to make it for friends! I used a HUGE Vidalia onion and 3 little yellow onions, and next time it will be all Vidalias; they ad..." See mored the best flavor. I loved the addition of the nutmeg, it really gives it a special something. Thanks for a super recipe!"
"This Onion Tart turned out great! It was very smooth and contrary to some other reviewers, was not too oniony. I only used 4 white onions, used regular pie crusts (not deep dish), and had enough batte..." See morer for almost 2 tarts. I would suggest trying 1 deep dish pie crust and hopefully everything will fit in it. Also, I made one batch with the bacon, one without. It turned out much better without the bacon. Based on my research, bacon is not used in many other traditional onion tart recipes. Lastly, I did not have nutmeg so I used McCormick's Allspice. This addition really made the difference and would suggest using it."
