Caramelized Onions and Bacon Tarts

As I mentioned the other day, I am always looking for new appetizers. After making the  Bacon Basil Tarts, I was hooks! The best part is that they are so small, you can easily make a variety of types of tarts and the best part: you can eat each one! So far, I have two variations, from the original recipe. I plan to make many more, so be prepared for quite a few tart recipes. The crusts are the same but the fillings are different. This recipe has a cheesy filling which is topped by caramelized onions and bacon. Give it a try and tell me what you think!
