Cheese Board & Onion Tart
In my opinion, the only thing that can beat a cheese and onion tart is a Cheese board & Onion Tart! Rather than simply using one or two types of cheese, I like to mix three cheeses into this tart filling – making it a melted cheese board! You can buy the cheese if you don’t have any, but this is actually a great dish to make if you have leftover cheeses from a cheeseboard.
Start by making a simple pastry crust. Bake it in the oven with baking beans. Sauté onions and break cheese into bite size chunks. You can use any cheese combination which takes your fancy – I used a third each of Gouda, Brie and Cheddar. To make the filling, whisk eggs and cream, salt and pepper in a bowl. Scatter the cheese and onion at the bottom of a pre-baked pastry crust and pour in the creamy filling. Bake.
