French Onion Tart

French Onion Tart

Inspiration: Bordeaux, France

One of our fondest memories from our time on the vineyards in Bordeaux, France was getting to cook with our host family! Since we lived in a remote area,  a lot of the ingredients we cooked with came out of our host family’s garden or from the local farmers markets, which we loved! This month’s featured recipe is our take on the deliciously rich French Onion Tart, which was inspired by the quiches and tarts we made during our time in Bordeaux.

What we love about the French Onion Tart is the convenience in pulling together the simple ingredients to make a tasty dish that can be served at breakfast or dinner! We modified some of the process with a few store bought items (i.e. pie crusts), but all the love in making our French Onion Tarts remain the same!
