Caramelized onion and goats cheese tart

| | |

Say hello to your new favourite weekend lunch! Caramelized balsamic onion jam, goats cheese and a smattering of thyme in an egg based, creamy tart is my idea of a cracking Sunday lunch. Throw in a dressed, green salad on the side and it’s pretty much perfect!

Now remember that Caramelized balsamic onion and thyme jam i posted a few weeks ago? It shines so brightly in this dish. And the tart flavour of goats cheese is basically a perfect match to it! It’s one of my favourite things to serve over a long, lazy lunch with friends.

What do i need?

The details…

  1. Preheat oven to 160°c
  2. In a bowl crack all the eggs and give a good whisk to combine egg whites and yolks. Add cream, milk, salt, pepper and again, whisk to combine. Set aside.
  3. On the tart base, spread the caramelized onion. Crumble the goats cheese over the top of the onion. Pour over the egg mixture. Sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves.
  4. Pop into the oven and bake for 40 minutes or until the top is golden

    Tip: Always place a tart tin with removable base on a baking tray before adding the filling. It’s much easier to get in and out of the oven

A quick note on goats cheese

So many people write off goats cheese for so many reasons. Personally, i love a good chevre. But i know so many shy away from it. Baking it into a tart is a great way to give it a try as the flavour is not as strong as it is on its own and there are so really good goats cheese producers in Australia. Meredith Dairy is probably the most well known, and widely available. Woodside, made in the Adelaide Hills is another great option.

How to finish this Caramelized onion and goats cheese tart

Served, really simply with a balsamic dressed green salad is always a hit in my family. If you are looking to incorporate it into a bit of a lunchtime grazing spread, I like to add cure meats, sourdough, condiments and a selection of cheeses alongside the quiche and salad. It also makes a really lovely entree if it’s a multi-course meal.
