  • Line a 9 inch fluted, loose-bottom flat tart pan with pastry. Chill for 15 minutes. Cover with foil, and fill with pie weights. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove foil and weights, and bake for a further 5 minutes.

  • Put onions in a roasting tin, and drizzle over the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Beat together egg yolks and cream, and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the red onions over the base of the baked pastry. Pour cream mixture over onions. Slice the goat cheese thinly, and dot over the top of the tart.

  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until custard has just set.

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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 Read More
