Emmental and Onion tart

Emmental and Onion tart


You may have had a fondue recently and if so you're likely to have some Emmental left over. Emmental is a medium hard cheese with a slightly sweet and nutty taste. This dish is very simple to recreate and would be great as a main course and can be eaten either hot or cold. This tart is great when accompanied by a Beurre Blanc sauce and watercress salad. 


Start by melting ½ the butter and brush each filo pastry sheet. Line a 10” flan ring by layering the pastry sheets on top of each other and cook in the oven at 175C for approximately 10 minutes or until they are golden brown.

For the filling, melt the remainder of the butter in a saucepan, add the onions and cook until soft. Remove from the heat and allow them to cool slightly, then mix in the French Emmental and egg yolks. To fill the tart, start with a layer of Coppa ham in the bottom, then alternate layers of the French Emmental mix and Coppa ham, finishing with the French Emmental mix.  Return to the oven and cook for 20 minutes at 175C.
