I have made this a number of times for my husband and I. I recently made this for July 4th for family and they loved it. It is a great side dish for barb q, or an elegant dinner. I didn't have the fresh herbs so I substituted dried and it was still wonderful. The cheese is the key. When making two adjust your cooking time, I had to add about seven minutes.
Rustic Vidalia Onion Tart
Don't worry about being exact when folding the piecrust. It's meant to look organic and free-form, allowing the filling to show through.
