This French Onion Tart is one of the best memories I have of France. I first tasted this tart when I traveled to France a couple of years ago. You can say that it was love at first bite. Une tarte à l’oignon, or onion tart instantly captured my heart. I love this tart with a simple green salad on the side for an easy and quick light meal during the day. Or a grab-and-go breakfast. Whenever I have guests coming over, I make sure to make this delicious French Onion Tart. This French Onion Tart is pretty easy to whip up in no time. I serve this hot with a light salad on the side. This pie also pairs perfectly with white wine. A tasty reminder of the great times I had in the city of love!


3 eggs

2 onions, thinly sliced

1/2 c. milk


1 1/2 ounces (40 grams) gruyère cheese, grated

6 ounces (180 grams) of smoked bacon, cut into strips

salt and pepper

1 pâte brisée (pie crust)


Step 1: In a medium saucepan, saute the bacon for about 7 minutes over medium-high heat until the bacon is completely cooked and crisped. Set the bacon aside when done.

Step 2: Add the onions to the now-empty skillet and cook for about 10 minutes until translucent.

Step 3: Place the eggs and milk in a bowl. Whisk well until combined. Season with just the right amount of salt and pepper.

Step 4: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C.

Step 5: Into a greased tart pan, fit the pie dough and lightly prick. Spread the onions and bacon on top and sprinkle with cheese. On top, pour the egg-milk mixture. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the tart is golden.
