Recipe Ingredients for Caramelized Onion and Potato Flan

1 large onions, sliced
2 T butter
2 potatoes, peeled and sliced
2 cups swiss cheese
1 salt and pepper

Recipe Directions for Caramelized Onion and Potato Flan

  1. Lightly butter the pan.

  2. Slice 2-4 large onions. I usually cut them in half first and then slice them lengthwise but you can use your prefered method. Just don't chop them. You want nice onion strings.

  3. Place onions in fry pan with 1-2 Tbsp. butter and saute slowly until onions are a deep caramel

  4. colour. This will take about 20 minutes.

  5. Peel and slice 2-4 large potatoes. I use a mandoline and slice them right into the flan dish.

  6. Cover the bottom of the pan with potato slices - if you want to be fancy you can overlap the slices in a spiral pattern - and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

  7. Cover potatoes with 1/2 of the caramelized onions.

  8. Grate Gruyre cheese over the onions

  9. Repeat with another layer of potatoes, caramelized onions and Gruyre cheese.

  10. Bake uncovered in 350 degree oven for about 50 minutes.

  11. Cut into wedges and serve.
