Number of Servings: 8


    4 slices Bacon, John Morrell, Hardwood Smoked Bacon
    3 tbsp Butter, unsalted
    4 cup, sliced Onions, raw
    1.25 tsp Diamond Crystal - Kosher Salt (by SHIRTTALES)
    16 tbsp Creme Fraiche (by CATMAN124)
    4 large Egg, fresh, whole, raw
    .5 tsp Nutmeg, ground
    1 crust, single 9" Frozen pie crust


Fill pie crust with dried beans to prevent puffing


Prepare filling while shell bakes:
Cook bacon in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer bacon with a slotted spatula to paper towels to drain and pour off bacon fat. Add butter to skillet and cook onions with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper over moderate heat, stirring, until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Cover surface of onions with a round of parchment or wax paper (or cover skillet with a tight-fitting lid) and continue to cook, lifting parchment to stir frequently, until onions are very soft and pale golden, about 20 minutes. Stir in bacon, then remove from heat and cool 10 minutes.
Whisk together crème fraîche, eggs, nutmeg, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl, then stir in onions.
Fill and bake tart:
Pour filling into tart shell, spreading onions evenly, and bake until filling is set and top is golden, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
