Lisa's Onion Tart

This is one of the best parts of an Evil Think Tank. I love seeing creative sparks fly. It's much better than throwing olives and you don't leave smelling like olive juice. Lisa had a tart pan before I even showed up at her house with my gobs of devilish ingredients. William Sanoma. Nice. Rectangular Tart Pan. We wanted a nice savory tart (no comments from the peanut gallery).
For Lisa's tart we used:
1 recipe of pie dough like we used in the Mango Frangipane Tart with Spiced Pomegranate Mola...
Prepared, rolled, formed and baked the same way as well.
3 pieces dry pear, chopped fine (about 1/2 cup)
2 onions, sliced thin (use your favorite)
2T butter
1 tsp thyme
1 cup chopped cooked ham
2 cups shredded Colby jack cheese
3 large green garlic stuffed olives
Pepper and paprika to taste
Saute the onions, pears, thyme and butter until the onions look like this. Medium heat.
Put that ham on the bottom of the prepared tart pan. It would not be a bad idea to spread some cream cheese in there...I think smoked salmon would be divine.
Cover ham with the onion pear mixture. Cover with cheese and add the three olives in a decorative manner over the top of the tart. Sprinkle with pepper and paprika. Yes, you must shake your hips for dramatic effect.
Bake 375 degrees 10-15 minutes, until cheese is melted and golden.
Enjoy warm. Refrigerate left overs.
Thank you Lisa for sharing your evil tart with me.
There you go.
