what the bacon and onions look like when ready

something that started out
as Grandmother’s onion tart
simple yet elegant
has become a delicacy
served in the best restaurants
there are many variations
the one I just made
has a short crust
slightly sweet and full of butter
it is patted into the pan
being too soft to roll
on the bottom of this shell
are sweet onions
delicately simmered with
apple smoked bacon
until the onions begin to caramelize
add about a cup of coarsely grated
Irish white cheddar
make a custard of four eggs
about half a cup of milk
and a pinch of nutmeg
bake at 350 degrees
about 40 minutes or until done
good hot or cold
