Welcome to Local Betty
Caramelized Onion Tart 354


My darling niece Hayley visited us for Thanksgiving. She's a true California-girl: surfer, spin instructor, uber clean-eating-charcoal-drinking SuperMom to adorable Jackson. I snuck this onion tart into the meal and she liked it! She even asked for the recipe.


You know those old family recipes that you love, but you don't want to give out because the ingredients are a little cringe-worthy? This is one of them– not exactly clean eating. But trust me, it's a tasty, tasty, tasty treat that's also fast– making it the perfect dish to bring to a shared meal. I modified it slightly from my mother's onion pie recipe (although telling people you are bringing an onion pie to the party is always fun #confusion).

So here goes. The recipe is a little fast-and-loose. I apologize to those cooks who need measurements. Like many family recipes it was never written down. So feel free to modify it yourself. A gluten-free or whole wheat crust would be divine. Cheddar instead of asiago– delicious. Crispy cubed pancetta would be a tasty addition. Sautee those onions with white wine if you feel inspired. I promise it will all be good.
