Bacon Tart

Bacon Tart
Adapted from Elana’s Pantry

Shallot Tart Crust:
1 ¼ C blanched almond flour
½ t sea salt
1 egg
¼ Spectrum vegetable shortening
1 shallot, minced

Preheat oven to 350.

In a food processor, pulse together all ingredients until the dough forms a ball. 

Press the dough evenly into the bottom and sides of a 9 in pie pan or tart pan.

Bake for 6-12 min until crust is golden.  Let cool before filling.

For the tart:

1 pound bacon
8 green onions thinly sliced both green and white parts
8 large eggs
½ t pepper
½ t sea salt (I left this out b/c I know my bacon is salty)

Preheat oven to 350.

Cook the bacon till lightly brown.  Remove the bacon and drain any extra bacon grease.  Add the green onions to the pan and sauté for a couple of minutes until a little soft.  Crumble the bacon back into the onions.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, pepper and salt.  Stir in the bacon/onion mixture.  Pour into pre-baked crust.

Bake for 25-30 min until cooked through.  Let cool a bit before serving.
