Tomato Gruyere Tart with Caramelized Onions
Slice one large yellow onion and put in pot with a bit of oil and butter. Slowly cook over medium-low heat for a very long time. The onions will be a dark brown, extremely soft and give off a sweet smell that fills your house. Roll out your dough into a pie pan and put the onions in the bottom. Top with about 8 oz. of grated Swiss gruyere cheese (grate it yourself, it's better that way). Slice up four or five really good garden tomatoes (mine were from my friend Suzy's garden -- thanks, Suzy!) and lay those on top of the grated cheese. Sprinkle with lots of salt and pepper and throw on a few basil leaves. Bake in a 350 degree oven until the crust is browned and the pie is bubbling.
Enjoy. Unless you're Oliver and you have declared that you'd rather have a cheeseburger with lettuce.
