Onion Flans with Fonduta



4 servings



5 tbsp. unsalted butter, divided
2 md. Spanish onions, sliced in 1/4-inch slices
1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
2 cups milk
3 eggs
5 egg yolks
1/4 cup grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 recipe Fonduta
1 md. white truffle, shaved


In a 10-inch to 12-inch sauté pan, heat butter until foam subsides. Add onions and cook slowly until soft and golden-brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool.

You'll need 3-ounce souffle rounds or flan dishes for this recipe. Butter the flan molds and preheat oven to 350°F. Divide the onions among the flan molds. In a bowl, whisk together nutmeg, rosemary, milk, eggs, yolks and grated cheese. Season with salt and pepper and divide milk mixture among the flan molds.

Place flans in brownie pan and fill to halfway with cool water. Place in oven and bake 45 minutes, or until insides are set or a toothpick exits dry. Remove from oven and allow to cool 5 minutes. Unmold and serve with Fonduta and truffles.
