A French Onion Tart recipe is also known as, Pissaladiere which is a traditional dish in the Alsace region of France located on the eastern border and on the west bank of the upper Rhine adjacent to Germany and Switzerland. In Germany, this tart is known as Zwiebelkuchen. The tart has similarities to pizza or a savory pie, and it provides a perfect showcase for the caramelized onions.
Enjoy this rustic French Onion Tart with its flavor combinations of crisp, toasted flat bread topped with caramelized onions and cumin seeds. You can eat these tarts with a fork or enjoy as the perfect handheld appetizer to accompany brie cheese and a creamy French blue cheese on your spring cheeseboard. Of course you must include a glass of your favorite wine!
This is a versatile dish that can also be enjoyed for dinner or even a special brunch occasion.
