--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   1      10-inch       Pie Crust
 280      Grams         Cheese (1/2 Swiss, 1/2 Gruyere) -- (10 ounces)
   2      Tablespoons   Flour
   2      Large         Onions
   4      Tablespoons   Butter
   1      Teaspoon      Basil, Chopped
   2      Large         Tomatoes (firm ones), Sliced
   2      Large         Eggs
     3/4  Cup           Cream

1)  Prepare the pastry for the pie, line a 10-inch pie dish and chill it.

2)  Grate all the cheese and toss it with the flour.

3)  Melt the butter in a large skillet, slice the onions and saute them very gently in the butter until they begin to turn golden (about 1/2 hour).

4)  Spread about 1/3 of the cheese over the bottom of the pie dish, then spread the onions (without the butter) over it.

5)  In the butter that is left in the pan, heat the tomato slices with the chopped basil for a minute or two.  Arrange the tomato slices over the onions, then cover with the remaining cheese.

6)  Beat the eggs with the cream and pour it over the cheese.  Sprinkle a little nutmeg on top, if you like.

7)  Bake in a preheated oven, 180° C (350° F) oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the top browns nicely.

8)  Serve hot, in wedges.
