Bermuda Onions Are Here!

Personally, I have been waiting all year for Bermuda Onion season. And finally, they are here.

To a lot of people Summer means stone fruit and strawberries, but to me it is all about sweet onions. More specifically, Bermudas. Bermudas are mild, sweet and flat in shape like a Cipollini onion, but so much better.

I want you to be as excited as I am, so I am going to give you a recipe from Try it out and see what all the fuss is about.

Caramelized Onion Tart

  • 4 large Bermuda onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, picked
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1(9-inch) parbaked pate brisee tart shell


Saute onions in oil and butter until caramelized and golden brown, then add thyme and a pinch of salt. Remove from pan and allow to cool. In a bowl, add heavy cream, eggs, nutmeg, and onions, season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture into tart shell and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until center does not jiggle.
