The strong flavoured blue cheese and sweet caramelised onions are a perfect pairing for this summer time tart. It is super delicious!
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas mark 6. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a large round, enough to line a 20cm round shallow tart tin, with removable base, leaving some excess pastry over hanging the rim. Place in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
- Line the pastry with baking paper and baking beans and blind bake for 15-20 minutes until the sides are set and lightly golden. Remove the paper and the beans. Place in the oven for a further 5-10 minutes. Remove from the oven, whilst warm, cut off the excess pastry to level the rim of the tin, allow to cool.
- In the meantime mix the blue cheese and mascarpone cheese with the egg yolks and thyme and then season to taste (be careful with the salt).
- Spoon the caramelised onion into the tart case and top with the cheese mixture. Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the filling is set. Serve warm or cold with salad, enjoy!
