Instructions

Tart Pastry: Work lightly together the pastry flour, butter, egg yolk,

a pinch of salt and cold water. Chill the dough for 1 hour, or until

needed.



Roll out half the dough to line the pie pan. Prick randomly with the

point of knife and crimp the edge with the tines of a fork. Save

remaining pastry for another pie.



Filling: Scatter diced ham on the crust.



Saut� sliced onions in butter until they are soft, but not brown;

spread over ham.



In a saucepan, beat four eggs with a good pinch of salt, cayenne and

nutmeg. Gradually add hot milk, beating continually with a wire whisk.

Continue to beat the mixture over a low fire until the custard begins

to thicken. Pour it into the tart shell and bake at 375 degrees F for

30 minutes, or until custard is set and the top is golden.



Serve hot.
