Onion Cake with Pears, Blue Cheese and Walnut

Onion cake with pear and walnuts

October 7th, 2018 | main dishes

Onion cake belongs to fall like falling leaves, mushrooms, fog and a bit of sentiment that summer is going on. This autumn, I changed my classic a bit and turned it into a tart. And what goes well with onions? Bacon, of course, and pears and blue cheese. A few walnuts on top – and the beautiful autumn soul warmer is ready.

Sure, I’m an absolute supporter of “homemade food”. I try to buy as little processed food as possible. Convenience normally is not on our table. With this onion cake, however, a ready-made pizza dough from the cooling shelf is a great alternative if things need to be done quickly. Thus, I can turn a blind eye – after all, you have already shed enough tears when cutting onions…

Who does not like blue cheese, can replace it with grated Parmesan!

BBQ potatoes

Finally, a side dish that also works on the grill: Salsa Verde Potatoes replace the classic grill companion, the French bread. Anchovies, capers and olives give great flavour, and fresh herbs add the ultimate kick. Whether the pan is on the stove or the grill in the end is irrelevant to the taste.

Vanilla shrimp with grilled honey melon

I love vanilla, especially in savory dishes. So this dish really jumped on me when I discovered it years ago in the culinary magazine “Effilee” in the section “Fast Plate” by Stevan Paul. The vanilla shrimp have now found a permanent place among our summer classics. And sometimes we get the summer back on the plate even in winter.
