Red Onion and Blue Cheese Tart

Red Onion and Blue Cheese Tart


Melt the butter in a large, deep frying pan and sweat the onions with the thyme and salt over a low to medium heat for 20 to 30 minutes until they are soft and lightly coloured. Tip into a colander and leave to drain and cool. Season with pepper.

Line a baking tray with non-stick baking parchment. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface until 3mm thick. Cut out a 30 x 23 cm rectangle. Place it on the parchment-lined tray and prick all over with a fork. Spread the cooled onions evenly over the pastry rectangle, leaving a 2 cm border clear. Fold the border in to make a double-thickness "frame" all around, pressing to seal. Refrigerate for 30 mins.

Heat the oven to 180 degrees C fan (200 degrees C/ gas 6).

Bake the tart for 20 to 25 minutes until the pastry is golden. Crumble the cheese in top, then bake for a further 3 minutes, until the cheese has just started to melt. Serve hot or at room temperature.

50g unsalted butter
6 red-skinned onions, finely sliced
2tbsp fresh thyme leaves
1tsp fine salt
375g pack puff pastry
100g Cropwell Bishop Stilton or Bath Blue Buy Cheese

It's nearly impossible to find educated people in this particular subject, however, you sound like you know what you're talking about! Thanks

I’m impressed, I have to say. Actually rarely do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the problem is one thing that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very completely happy that I stumbled across this in my seek for something referring to this.
