You may not be a great cook. Or even a good cook. But this delicious sour cream onion bacon tart is a breeze to make. And if you want to show off to all your friends what a great cook you are, this tart not only tastes yummy, but it looks like a gourmet cook baked it his or her self. 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 smells 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.” – Paula Deen
Delicious Sour Cream Onion Bacon Tart
A perfect side dish.
- 1 1/2 cups finely crushed organic wheat crackers
- 8 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 large onions, thinly sliced (about 2 1/2 cups)
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 8 ounce carton of sour cream
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I use sharp cheddar cheese)
- 4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch pie pan with butter and set aside.
- In a small bowl, stir together the crushed wheat crackers and 6 tablespoons of butter. Press the crackers in the pie pan with a spoon and set aside.
- In a large skillet, melt the two remaining tablespoons of butter and place the sliced onions in the pan. Cook the onions for 7-10 minutes until very tender.
- Spread the onions evenly over the pie crust.
- In a medium size bowl, mix together the eggs, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Pour mixture over the onions.
- Sprinkle the top with cheddar cheese and crumbles of bacon.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until the tart is set. Let the tart set a few minutes before serving.
It’s time to take your masterpiece out of the oven and share this bad boy with your friends and family. Be ready to soak in the compliments. (Except for the onion haters, you won’t hear a thing from them!) We’ll keep the secret between us how easy making a Sour Cream Onion Bacon Tart is.
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!)
