"Scallion or onion tart

"If you wan t to make a tart of theses things, take whichever you want 
and boil it well. Take it out of the water and squeeze it in sieve and 
then chop them finely. Take fine lard and chop/grind it well, eggs, 
fresh cheese, and saffron and mix all these things together and make the 

Pretty straightforward. Parboil the scallions, squeeze out the water, 
chop them up, put it with eggs, cheese, saffron and put it in a pastry 
shell and bake.

I leave out the lard because it turned out to be simply too much fat. 
I'm wondering if the cheese they were using was lower fat than what I 
used (blend of Italian cheeses that comes in a ziploc-style package- 
much easier to deal with in camp and it's a tasty blend).
