About this recipe: This is a traditional French holiday side dish made without any cheese. It's also a very simple side dish that will impress other cooks at potluck parties.
My family, coworkers and friends ask for this dish at almost every potluck or holiday event. PS: I always use yellow(brown) onions as they are sweeter, never white or red. ---- Update I love seeing how everyone is finding ways to make it that suits their families and pantry, how creative.

This Onion Tart turned out great! It was very smooth and contrary to some other reviewers, was not too oniony. I only used 4 white onions, used regular pie crusts (not deep dish), and had enough batter for almost 2 tarts. I would suggest trying 1 deep dish pie crust and hopefully everything will fit in it. Also, I made one batch with the bacon, one without. It turned out much better without the bacon. Based on my research, bacon is not used in many other traditional onion tart recipes. Lastly, I did not have nutmeg so I used McCormick's Allspice. This addition really made the difference and would suggest using it. - 20 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is amazing. It's a little much for a weekday dinner but I can't wait to make it for friends! I used a HUGE Vidalia onion and 3 little yellow onions, and next time it will be all Vidalias; they add the best flavor. I loved the addition of the nutmeg, it really gives it a special something. Thanks for a super recipe! - 20 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
