Alsatian Onion Tart

From the Alsace Region of France comes this rustic Onion Tart.

1 sheet of frozen Puff Pastry, thawed
1 C Diced Bacon (I use vegetarian bacon) 
3 Onions, thinly sliced
3 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1/2 tsp Caraway Seeds
1 Bay Leaf
Salt and Pepper
4 Eggs
1/2 C Whole Milk
A Pinch of Nutmeg

On a floured surface, roll out the pastry until quite thin
Butter a Deep Dish Pie Pan and with flour.
Using a rolling pin, transfer the pastry to the Pie Pan

Cook Bacon about 5 minutes
Add Onion for 10 minutes
Add Garlic, Caraway Seeds, Bay Leaf, a pinch of Salt and a pinch of pepper
Onions should begin to caramelize

In a bowl, whisk together:
Eggs
Milk
Nutmeg
Add Bacon and Onion
Combine well
Pour into the pie pan
Bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes
Crust should be brown and the center the tart tart will be set.

Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!
