It has a frail shortcrust fritter base, which a tasty stuffing which is made from solemnly caramelized onions, milk, eggs, Gruyere Cheese (a deliciously eccentric and sweet Swiss cheese) and hazed bacon.

It is smoothly flavored with rosemary and coriander root (cilantro).  we was a bit disturbed which since they have been both really clever flavored spices they competence repress the flavors of this tart, though they worked ideally . . . which equates to there is usually a spirit of them, permitting the smokiness from the bacon and the benevolence of the cheese and onions to gleam through.
