NOT a dessert! This is nice as a lunch or a side dish at a buffet. It can also be made in mini-tart shells as an appetizer...

Very good. I sprinkled some caraway seeds on top - personal preference.
Next time I will mix the egg/cream mixture into the onions as it didn't really penetrate the dish but just sat on top.
