Serves 4

1 pk good puff pastry

2 large onions

3 sprigs of thyme

1 sprig of rosemary

400ml double cream

4 egg yolks

3 whole eggs

Pinch of nutmeg

Roll out your puff pastry and line your tart ring.

Remove paper and beans when cool and leave to aside.

Slice onions and chop the thyme and rosemary, place into a large pan and cook with a little butter and vegetable oil until golden.

Season well and add the nutmeg, leave to cool.

Crack all the eggs and mix with the cream, pour over the cool onion mix then transfer into the baked tart case.
