Onion Tart

Along with everyone else, I've also volunteered to do some recipe testing for the Good Home Cookbook. The first recipe that I tried was pretty straight forward - Glazed Onions (cooked with dry sherry). They suggested it aa topping for steaks and burgers but as this is not really normal fare at our place, I decided to use it for an onion tart instead.

Now, I'm really not into making pastry at all. I tried it once in a baking class about 12 months ago, but it seems like too much work to lazy ol' me! Unfortunately, the only casing I could find at our local supermarket was labelled pastry flan. There was a recipe on the back of the packaging for a spinach and feta tart, so I didn't realise that it was actually a sweet pastry. After mixing the glazed onions together with some eggs and cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg and pouring into the tart casing, I baked it at 170C for about 15-20 min. I thought it looked pretty wonderful and brought some into work for everyone to try. I didn't mind the taste cos I have a sweet tooth anyway, but the overall feeling was that it was too sweet for a savoury tart.
