      the filling was very tasty but for some reason it was a bit too watery. i had to bake it an additional 15 minutes and it still wasn't quite set. we did enjoy the flavor of the cheeses and i used a sweet vidalia onion, which lent an nice crunch. this made a lovely lunch with a tossed green salad

      A delightful savoury tart! Also like the fact that it's not too big - perfect for my small family! I used margarine instead of Crisco and only 200 ml of cream (as opposed to 240 ml - just because cream comes in 200 ml cartons here!). Baked for 30 minutes after setting the temperature to 350 (175 C) as the tart hadn't browned much at 25 minutes - for me it set perfectly! Thanks for a lovely recipe!
