Makes 8 Servings
- 6 slices of bacon, roughly chopped
- 7 ounces ham, chopped
- 2 medium (~22 ounces) Vidalia onions, thinly sliced
- 4 eggs
- 1 carton (~460 grams) egg whites
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- In a large skillet, over medium heat, fry the chopped bacon until crisp. Then remove to a paper towel to drain. Reserve 2 TBSP bacon grease.
- Using the reserved bacon grease, cook the thinly sliced onion over medium-low to medium heat, stirring occasionally until significantly reduced and light caramel in color…approximately 40-60 min. Be careful not to burn the onions. Once onions are fully carnalized, remove to a paper towel to absorb any excess grease and cool.
- Pre-heat oven to 350. Grease a pie plate (deep dish or 2 regular pie plates)
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, and cream. Then add the ham, cheese, cooled bacon, and cooled onions mixing well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Pour the mixture into a prepared pie plate (or 2 depending on size) and bake uncovered for 30 min or until the tart is set and golden brown on top.
- Serve with a side of bacon or ham. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week. In the freezer for up to a month.
