Onion Tart

This tart is delicious and very quick to prepare.


1 roll of short-crust pastry (no time this evening to make it!)
4 onions
2 eggs
200 ml of liquid cream
200 ml of milk
2 spoons of olive oil
Ground Nutmeg
Salt, Pepper

Peel and chop the onions. In a frying pan, soften the onions in oil on a low heat for 20 minutes without letting them colour. Add a little water, if need be. Preheat the oven to thermostat 7 (210°C). Place the pastry into a baking tin. Then cover the pastry with greaseproof paper, and pour dry beans, or lentils, into the tin - this is to weigh down the pastry and prevent it from rising whilst you pre-cook it for 10 mn. Then discard the paper and dry beans.
In a salad bowl, mix the cream, eggs, milk, nutmeg, salt, pepper. Add the onions and mix well. Add this preparation to the pastry, and cook for 40 mn.
