What the best tart filling?

I know that's open question, I got a new tart pan and I dying to try it out but just cant decide. So what is your favorite tart filling? Sweet or Savory, I thought of quiche, lemon curd, chocolate cream, apple/ berries? Anything else?

      Honest to god, LEMON! was my first reaction too. But the world is your oyster. There are a million savory, wonderful egg variations....and meats. Over the holidays I had a mince tart. Heaven!

        Oh yes, there's a lot of great ones, but if we're picking our one favorite, mine is always lemon :)

        Hmmm I need to buy a tart pan.

          Oooh, oyster! Ok, probably not. Start with the lemon...

      2. Anything almond for me. An almond pastry cream or frangipane filling, yum!

        1. Chow has a great chocolate ganache tart recipe that I used every Thanksgiving.

          1. Meyer lemon and blood orange while they're in season! I adore dark chocolate but you can do that any time of year.

            For savory, you can't go wrong with winter greens, caramelized onions, bacon & cheese.

            1. whatever is fresh and in season is what finds its way into my tart pan.

              In the winter, apples and pears and quiches.
