1 (9 inch)
unbaked pie crust
red onions, quartered with roots intact
heavy whipping cream
4 1/2 ounces
salt to taste
ground black pepper
The only changes I made were to saute the chopped onion in olive oil. I wish, however, I had made my own pie crust - I really did not like the sweetness of the pastry with the salty goat cheese (I would actually give the recipe 3.5 stars because of this). If I were to make this again, I would add a little extra-sharp Cheddar to the cream and egg yolks. This is a good basic recipe that can easily be tweaked to personal preference.
This was a very simple recipe to follow. I added some garlic, and dried sage the second time i made it for a bit of added flavour
Leaving the onion in quarters didn't make any sense to me. I chopped it up before roasting, and roasted it for 30 min to caramelize well. I used heavy cream instead of heavy whipping cream (it's all i had) and it worked fine. Added thyme, sage, rosemary, and a little grated cheddar to the custard. I used to recipe "Easy to remember pie crust" from this website. I didn't measure the goat cheese, but i probably doubled it to be nice and cheesy. I would give 5 stars if it weren't for the instruction to leave the onion quartered. That just seems difficult to eat.
Not for kids
Huge hit at my husband's birthday bash. I made tartlets using the pie crust and mini cupcake tins. It was great for individual serving sizes.
This tasted absolutely wonderful! I substituted extra mature white cheddar because I didn't have any goat cheese, which no doubt gave it a different flavour, but still really good. Next time I'll try it with some really goat-y goat cheese - mmm, I'm looking forward to impressing guests with this recipe!
Whole onions make it really had to cook thoroughly. Now my girlfriend boggles her eyes wherever onions are mentioned. Don't bother with this, unless you really love raw onions.
It wasn't very popular at all but largely it was my fault. I made my own pastry and it turned out a bit too oily and soft and the goat cheese I used wasn't the best. But the recipe sounds fantastic and can definitely be made into a 5 star one, to taste like these little tarts Marks and Spenser sell
