Caramelized Onion and Bacon Tart
Why guests love it: We once heard quiche Lorraine referred to as "bacon cheesecake" and instantly fell in love with the name—and not just because it sounds outrageously good. It eliminates the stigma often associated with quiche (too fussy, too brunch-y, too dainty) and tells it like it is: This is a cake made of cheese and bacon.

Why cooks love it: You can easily make this crowd-pleasing savory tart, which brims with caramelized onions, bacon and ricotta cheese, hours ahead of time and serve it warm or at room temperature.
