Creamed Onion Tart
Recipe: Creamed Onion Tart
Onions may be standard Southern side dishes, but this recipe makes them the star of your Thanksgiving sideboard. Rather than simply serving these great vegetables as slices, rings, or whole, here they are creamed and served as the main filling in a delicious tart. Paired with bacon—the onions had been cooked in their drippings—this tart is the perfect mix of salty and sweet. You’ll hardly be able to wait.
"This recipe makes classic creamed onions seem inventive and stylish. A generous wedge is an appealing side dish, but it'll make a nice first course, if paired with a salad. The tart tastes great served warm or at room temperature." —Sheri Castle, author of The Southern Living Community Cookbook
