A lovely cheese and onion pie done with a hot water crust pastry, which is made with milk instead of water. Tip: Use the pastry while still warm, it's easy to roll out.
The secret is in the pastry! If lard is not your style then it can be substituted with butter or margarine. It is simple & delicious!
This pie is simple to prepare. Serve with a salad for dinner, or with fruit for brunch. Dry goat cheese can be used in place of feta cheese.
I use a shop-bought shortcrust pastry sheet to save some time. The hardest part of this recipe is peeling and cutting the onions! Just get a tissue to wipe away your tears... it's worth it! This tart is very nice served cold and ideal for a picnic.
This is lovely, especially good for vegetarians! I use a ready made shop bought flan case, this saves a lot of 'time' and 'hassle'! lol!
The haggis and pickled onions create a surprisingly delicious taste combination in these quick canapes.
This is a luscious onion tart that will become a staple in your kitchen. Onions are lightly caramelised and scattered atop a lovely homemade pastry. A creamy blend of eggs, milk and soured cream top it off, with a sprinkling of pepper and caraway seed. Makes a show-stopping lunch or cut into small pieces for canapés.
I bought some Feuilles de Brick for these light little tarts. The pastry has origins in Tunisia, but is popular in France, and it is light as air - lighter than filo pastry and more crunchy. The kids love how the pastry crackles when you eat it. I served these directly from the tart moulds. It was easy, and there's really no need to remove them from the moulds.
This onion tart is similar, yet quite different, to the classic French quiche. It has a garlic pastry and is packed with loads of caramelised onions, fresh thyme, prosciutto and caraway seeds.
This is a vegetarian variation of the German onion pie without the usual addition of bacon. The low-fat pastry is made with quark. If quark is not available, it can be easily substituted with 0% Greek yoghurt.
