Onion pie

January 23rd, 2012 Comments Off on Onion pie

In Germany, this onion cake or tart is called zwiebelkuchen which is made of a yeast dough.

First, I changed the dough of  zwiebelkuchen with a simple flan recipe, then one of the most important filling ingredient; which is bacon with pastırma.

A red vintage wine is a brilliant idea and matches well with onion cake with pastırma !

  • 2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 T baking powder
  • In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together. Roll out the dough into a greased and floured 28cm diameter cake pan.

    For the filling:

  • 750 gr onion (peeled, cut into rings)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 t caraway
  • 1/2 t black pepper flakes
  • 50 gr butter
  • 60 gr pastırma (Turkish bacon) – diced
  • 70 gr creme fraiche (optional)
  • 100 gr hard yellow cheese (grated)
  • Saute the onion rings with diced pastırma until the onions are soft about 10 minutes. Add caraway.

    Spread the onion mixture to the rolled dough and let cover the dough evenly.

    Cover with grated hard yellow cheese.

    In a separate bowl, mix eggs, black pepper and creme fraiche. Put to cheese covered onion mixture.

    Bake in 200° C pre-heated oven for 40- 50 minutes until golden brown.
