Recipe Tarte tatin with onions


  • 1.5 kg red onion
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 C. olive oil
  • 1 C. brown sugar
  • 25 g butter
  • thyme
  • 1 shortcrust pastry



Peel the onion and cut into rings about 1 cm thick. Put them in a baking dish, then drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.


Sprinkle with sugar and garnish with chunks of butter. Finally add the thyme and bake for 30-35 minutes at 180°C until they are soft.


Once the onions are browned and soft, place them in a pie dish lined with parchment paper.


Put shortbread dough on top, bending the edges inward. Bake for 15 minutes at 180°C until the pastry is golden brown.


Let cool for a few minutes before flipping the onion tart tatin, then remove the baking paper and serve immediately!
