What do you like for breakfast the most? If the answer is eggs, then you can surely give these caramelized onion and egg tarts a try. Tart, for the unfamiliar, is a short-crust pastry made with a crunchy base that is usually filled or topped with a sweet or savoury filling. This baked delight can be a great breakfast item as it can be stuffed with fillings of your choice.

The key ingredient that shines in this tart is the caramelized onions due to their perfect pairing with eggs. To achieve their mildly sweet flavour, the onions are chopped and coated in sugar before being spread over the perfectly cooked eggs and placed inside a tart. The end result is a deliciously cooked egg tart that is sure to tempt you to try making it at home.

Here’s a recipe for you to try.


    2 frozen shortcrust pastry sheets

    8 eggs  

    3 thinly sliced and caramelized onions

    1 tablespoon of butter

    2 tablespoons thyme sprigs

    1 teaspoon salt

    Olive oil  


    Begin by placing the shortcrust pastry sheets into a pie tin.

    Freeze them for a few hours so that they take proper shape.

    Meanwhile, caramelize onions in a pan with sugar, sea salt, and thyme.

    Next, take the shortcrust out of the pie and bake it for some time.

    Once done, add caramelized onions to the base of the pastry.

    Make space and crack open an egg in each of them.  

    Garnish with parmesan cheese.

    Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden-brown.
