Cooking Instructions

1

Heat oven to 425°F. In large skillet, heat the butter over medium heat. Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes, or until very soft and golden.


2

Prepare the pie crust according to the package directions for a single crust; refrigerate the remaining crust for a later use. Gently press the crust into the bottom and up the sides of an 11-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Place the cheese in the pan; sprinkle the flour, thyme, salt, nutmeg, and pepper over the top. Toss lightly to combine; smooth to make an even layer.


3

Transfer the cooked onions to the tart pan; arrange the onions to make an even layer. In small bowl, whisk together the eggs and the half-and-half; pour evenly over the cheese mixture.


4

Place the tart on a baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 375°F; bake 30 minutes longer, or until the filling puffs and is just set. Cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
