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!

Schupfnudeln – Autumn Soulfood

“Schupfnudeln” is a typical German dish. We talk about fingershaped dumplings made of potoatoes. This recipe combines these dumplings with minced meat and apples – very simple. But often the simple dishes are the most popular ones. Especially with children. Same with our stir-fried Schupfnudeln with apples. Our son and daughter have been crazy about this dish since childhood. Apple and horseradish anyhow are a perfect pair, endive salad as a vegetable and a quick horseradish dip provide the freshness kick.
