Blue Cheese and Onion Flan Recipe

Blue Cheese and Onion Flan Recipes

Ingredients :

2 tbsp olive oil

1 kg red onions, thinly sliced

1 tsp soft brown sugar

185g plain (all-purpose) flour

100g cold butter, cubed

185ml cream

3 eggs

100g blue cheese, crumbled

1 tsp chopped thyme leaves

Method :

Heat the oil in a heavy based frying pan over low heat. Cook the onion and sugar, stirring for 45 minutes, or until the onion is caramelized. Sift the flour into a bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Make a well in the center and add 3-4 tablespoons cold water. Mix with a flat-bladed knife, using a cutting action until the mixture gathers in beads. Gently press together and lift onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F, Gas 4. Lightly grease a 23cm (9") loose based flan tin. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface, and invert over the tin. Press in with a small ball of pastry, trim and chill for 10 minutes. Line the pastry with baking paper and fill with baking beads. Bake the case on a tray for 10 minutes. Remove the beads and paper, and bake for 10 minutes, or until pale gold and dry. Cool, then spread the onion over the pastry base. Whisk the cream, eggs, cheese, thyme and some freshly ground black pepper together, then pour over the onion and bake for 35 minutes, or until firm.
