Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and use to line a deep 23cm fluted flan tin. Line with baking paper and fill with baking beans. Bake blind for 15 mins.

  2. Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan, then gently fry the onions, covered, for about 30 mins until completely softened, but still pale in colour.

  3. Beat the eggs and cream together in a bowl, then add the cheese and some seasoning. Stir in the onions, then spoon the mixture into the flan case. Bake for 25-30 mins until lightly set and browned.

Lovely and creamy with a sweet onion flavour. Only used half the cream and the mixture fitted my flan case perfectly and set beautifully. Ate with a salad warm, but also nice cold the next day on a picnic.

Made this (using bought pastry) and took it to a pot luck supper last night.

It was delicious and got lots of compliments.

Increased the amount of cheese by half again.

I also made my own pastry but didnt fill it with all the cream etc as it would never have set.

Nice but mine came out far too creamy. Next time I'll just use a little less

This was absolutely delicious, I agree with the comment on seasoning made by marydrum. I also used longlife whipping cream as that is all we can get in Yemen and it was absolutely fine. Might appeal to all those watching their fat content.. ( I believe whipping is lower in fat than double??)
Will be making this again.

Excellent tart, brought great compliments! Pay attention to seasoning - mine needed a lot more.
