Caramelized Onion, Smoked Gouda and Pecan Rice Tart

6 servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups sliced sweet mild onion (about 3 large)
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups shredded smoked Gouda cheese
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute 8 to 10 minutes, stirring periodically until browned and caramelized. Meanwhile, combine rice, Parmesan and eggs in a medium bowl. Press mixture into bottom of a 10-inch removable bottom pan. Distribute onion over crust and top with smoked Gouda and pecans. Bake in preheated oven 12 to 15 minutes, until pecans are toasted.

Tip: To hasten caramelizing, add 2 tablespoons brown sugar to onions just as they become translucent.
