Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Roll out the pastry so it is large enough to fit a deep 23cm loose-bottomed tart tin, then line the tin with the pastry. Chill for 30 mins. Line the pastry with greaseproof paper, fill with baking beans and bake for 15 mins. Remove the paper and beans and return the tin to the oven for 5 mins until golden, then remove and set aside. Reduce oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan, add the onions and potato and cook over a very gentle heat for 10-15 mins, turning occasionally, until golden and tender. Season if you want to, then add the garlic and thyme leaves, and cook for a further 3 mins. Tip into the pastry case along with the goat’s cheese and spread out evenly.
  3. Whisk the eggs and crème fraîche together, season if you want to, then pour into the pastry case and bake for 30-35 mins until lightly golden brown and just set in the centre. Serve warm, with rocket leaves scattered over if using.

This is simply devine. I made it yesterday but added pancetta cubes too and as I'm lactose intolerant could only get sour cream instead of crème fraîche . Hmmmmm. I'll certainly be making it again! I'll add a bit more thyme though as the flavour didn't come through. I preboiled the potatoes like some on the commentators suggested but that wasn't such a good idea, I think. They were quite soft making stirring difficult at the end. I think they'll cook through thoroughly on low heat.

This is an absolutely delicious tart and one I will definately be making again! I completely cooked the potatoes first in a pan as I didn't want to risk them being undercooked. I used sliced new potatoes with skins on.

Made this as per recipe to serve as part of a laid back buffet lunch for family and friends. It was loved by all, even those who are not massive fans of goats cheese. Served with a homemade beetroot chutney on the side.

Really easy and very tasty, but I always find lining a tin with pastry so fiddly! Put the tin on a baking tray to avoid oven spillages and help to bake the tart base.

Read all the reviews and had high expectations but didn't think it was anything spectacular...maybe because I am not overkeen on thyme?! Will try the remainder tomorrow warmed up though!

This was really scrummy. I used red onions with a glug of balsamic and it was very tasty.

A really nice recipe!

The first night had it with salad and chips which was great, but even better was having the left overs with potato croquettes and a tin of plum tomatoes!! Pure heaven!

I generally dont like tarts pastry or quiche and this has almost converted me!
very easy. I made the pastry from the cheeseboard tart recipie and it is bloody amazing the house honks of creamy anchor butter! make sure u use good proper english butter. I would season at each stage but easy on the salt because of the goats cheese. One last thing i made mine in mini tart dishes. It worked but they are not very deep plus it took about a third less cooking time.

yum yum x

My first tart ever! Total success, all gone in a second. I used grated mature cheddar instead of goat's cheese and natural yoghurt instead of creme fraiche. I also added few florets of broccoli on one side of the dish. The biggest surprise for me was thyme! Delicious.

Shared this with a few friends on a jazz cruise - they were all in agreement - DELICIOUS! It's in the binder ready for the next picnic.

This was absolutely yummy. I made this for a buffet party and only got to taste a small slice. Will definitely make again. I used garlic boursin cheese instead of the goats cheese and left the garlic out of the recipe. Gorgeous.

This recipe is fantastic. It was simple to make and tasted great. This made a brilliant Sunday meal for my vegeterian guest.
