I found this recipe in an old magazine and modified it over the years. It’s one of those tried and true gems that’s passed down in the family.

“Onions and bacon cooking up just makes your kitchen smell good. In fact, one day I’m going to come up with a room deodorizer that smells like bacon and onions. It’s a fabulous smell.”

Tips on Making Sour Cream Onion Bacon Tart

1) When slicing onions, do yourself a favor and use a mandoline. You want the onions to be thinly sliced. If you don’t have one, run don’t walk to the store and get one. (I know I encourage you to get rid of things, but this is something that makes slicing things a breeze and easy clean-up!)

2) If you don’t want crust along the edges of the pan, use only 1 cup of crushed wheat crackers and 4 tablespoons of butter.

3) Feel free to add your favorite herb to the sour cream mixture for extra flavor.

4) For a vegetarian option, add sautéed mushroom pieces to the top instead of bacon. (This was my neighbor’s suggestion…thanks Sandy!)
